Monday June 17 @ 6:30pm: MJ Pilgrim “Horticultural Trivia–with Prizes!”

  • Horticultural Trivia:  A lighthearted but challenging evening of “test your memory” on all things horticulture. Great for challenging your group to put their knowledge to the test, either individually or in groups. Bonus:  Prizes!

Mary-Jane Pilgrim joined the Peterborough Hort Society and the Peterborough Master Gardeners over 10 years ago and loves getting out and meeting other gardeners to “talk plants”. The love of gardening is probably hereditary as she grew up in a large farm family with Dutch immigrant parents.  She definitely was not a fan in those days of weeding rows and rows of vegetables, but loves the colour and fragrance of her garden today.  MJ was the president of the society in Peterborough for the last 8 years and now serves as the Past President.  She was also an assistant director for OHA District 4 in 2021-2023.

While not too applicable to this talk, MJ enjoys cycling, playing squash and making/fixing stained glass windows.
