St. Margaret's Bay Gardening Club
Gardeners Helping Gardeners
We meet at the Tantallon Library on Wednesday, January 15th at 7:00.
Our speaker – Kelly Grant – Woodland & Shade Gardens
Her presentation to the St. Margaret’s Bay Gardening Club will focus on woodland and shade gardens and the unique challenges that they provide.
Kelly will highlight some strategies and make many excellent plant recommendations.
Kelly’s endless fascination with landscapes of all kinds has driven her career into landscape and garden design and her car very nearly off the road on many occasions!
After previous careers in the investment industry and while raising her two children, Kelly completed her Diploma in Environmental Horticulture from Dalhousie’s Faculty of Agriculture in 2010 and has been working for Bloom as Landscape Designer for 11 years. She offers consultation, coaching and design services.
Kelly’s involvement with garden clubs started first as a member and then as Co-President with the Hammonds Plains Area Garden Club many years ago. Since then, she has enjoyed speaking for local garden clubs on a wide variety of topics related to plants, gardens and design.
New members (and guests too!) are always welcome, so come and bring a friend. We accept donations for our local food bank.
Join at any meeting and be eligible for our monthly doorprize!
