When the going gets tough, the tough get growing!
 
Despite the difficult times we find ourselves in, spring has arrived and we can take pleasure from the warmer weather and the joy of gardening. Sadly, with Town facilities closed until at least mid May, our April meeting is cancelled as well as the annual Plant sale that was scheduled for May 16th at the Livingston Activity Centre.  
 
Annual Plant Sale - Plan B
Fear not. As plants become available thru donations from local nurseries, we will offer them to members, family and friends thru email and facebook notices, with pre-arranged curbside pick-up and delivery.  This process worked well with the sale of Tulips and Easter Lilies over the past few weeks. The board will look to reschedule the annual plant sale when we are on the other side of the pandemic as we'd like to get members' garden plants to each other in the spirit of sharing and caring.
