Gardening Saturday moving back to the Mennonite University
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.gardensmanitoba.com/page1859223
