The Verdant Valley Ag Society met on Tuesday, February 23 at the Community Center with 13 members present. Much of the meeting was spent planning for the horticulture and gardening workshop that will be held on Saturday, April 16 at the Verdant Valley Community Center. Keynote speaker will be Jim Hole, Alberta’s top horticultural authority and Certified Arborist. He will be speaking on the topic – “Garden Myths” and will have lots of time for questions and answers. He provides solutions to beautify your yard and garden and help it produce more fruits and vegetables. Jim will speak in the afternoon and we are fortunate to be able to offer an interesting speaker for the morning in the persons of Tim Schowalter and his wife Laraine Hess who are local experts on Natural History and will speak about “Attracting and Promoting Desirable Birds, Plants and Wild Life to your yard, garden and farmstead”. Everyone interested in gardening is invited to attend this workshop. Preregistration is essential and registration will include one or both speakers and lunch.
