20 years young!

Manitoba Gardener Magazine - - LOCAL DIRT -

It was 1987 when Dorothy Dob­bie be­gan Man­i­toba Gar­dener from her base­ment. Staff was min­i­mal, and a mis­take by the printer had the first is­sue printed en­tirely in bold, some­thing Dorothy still shakes her head at with laugh­ter to­day. But even with the print­ing er­ror, read­ers were ec­static, and by the sec­ond is­sue, Man­i­toba Gar­dener had 3,000 paid sub­scribers and was on news­stands through­out the city and prov­ince.

Fast for­ward 20 years and Man­i­toba Gar­dener is still go­ing strong. Our pur­pose has re­mained the same, to share gar­den­ing ad­vice that is suit­able to our cli­mate with pas­sion­ate gar­den­ers like our­selves — and to share the beauty of our prov­ince with ev­ery­one.
