Gar­den­ing Satur­day mov­ing back to the Men­non­ite Univer­sity

Manitoba Gardener Magazine - - LOCAL DIRT -

Pres­i­dent Mick Man­field, the new pres­i­dent of Friends of Gar­dens Man­i­toba has an­nounced that the an­nual Gar­den­ing Satur­day show will move back to its old home at the Men­non­ite Univer­sity at 500 Shaftes­bury Blvd. this spring. The date is much closer to grow­ing sea­son at April 28. Mani- toba Gar­dener will be there and we hope you will be, too.

After sev­eral years at a com­mer­cial lo­ca­tion, it was con­cluded that the in­ti­macy of the old Univer­sity bet­ter re­flected the home­spun feel­ing of the gar­den­ing com­mu­nity here in Man­i­toba. April is a bet­ter time for buy­ing plants and know­ing that they will still be alive and well in the gar­den a few weeks later.

Mick would also like to re­mind you that Dave Han­son and Mag­gie Wysoki record a weekly pod­cast about gar­den­ing that they share on the Gar­dens Man­i­toba web­site. http:// www.gar­dens­man­i­
