Gardening Myths Robert Pavlis, Master Gardener, Educator and Speaker Thursday March 11, at 11:00am
There are a number of gardening myths, including myths about planting trees, natural pesticides, hostas don’t grow in sun, and weed barriers prevent weeds from growing. This presentation will include a variety of photos showing gardens. It will also touch on the science of soil and briefly discuss how to build a pond.
Without a doubt, for those of you who that have pets, you will have relied on their companionship throughout these stressful times during lockdown. We would like to hear about your stories and share your pictures of your furry friends. We will put together a mosaic of our members and their pets, similar to what you see above.
Featured in this collage is myself with our cat JJ. Christine our Janitor, with her kitten Benny, and Vicky who works at the front desk with her dog Jasmine. I sure do miss these guys who are currently redeployed in other departments. Let's not forget DJ who has also been redeployed. He doesn't have a pet but let's give him a shout out anyway. I don't miss him as much....just kidding Brooks, of course I do! The four of us cannot wait to get back to the centre and see you all again soon.
The fourth picture is of Tammy, one of our fitness instructors who is currently teaching her amazing classes via Zoom. Her dog is called Ace.
Photos of your adorable pets will be accepted until March 19. I can't wait to meet them all.
