This will be our AGM and installation of Officers for 2016 for the Omemee and District Horticultural Society.
Our speaker will be Joyce Higgs speaking on Catherine Parr Trail Wildflowers. Joyce and her husband Mike retired to a 10 acre property near the village of Hastings where they do Square Foot Gardening and grow many heritage varieties of fruit and vegetables as well as growing native flowers. Joyce familiarized herself with pioneer gardens and immersed herself in the world of Catherine Parr Trail and her love of wildflowers.
We will also hold our annual Photo Show and Competition. Please check your year book for the details and categories for this years photo show. All are welcome. Social time at 7:00pm meeting at 7:30pm.
Joyce started gardening with a front-yard garden on a small city lot in Peterborough in 2001. She and her husband bought 10 acres south of Hastings in 2007 and started gardening in earnest. Combining their interest in history and gardening, she and her husband Mike became volunteer gardeners at Lang Pioneer Village. While familiarizing herself with pioneer gardens, Joyce immersed herself in the world of Catharine Parr Trail and was struck by Catharine's love of wildflowers and has since developed a wide knowledge of the native plants used.
