Gardening expert Kenneth C. Brown, will join our January meeting and draw the average gardener deeper into the joys of horticulture. Everyone who has ever wished for a wider range of flowers and vegetables to plant in their garden will find the answer to their dilemma by perusing the seed racks and catalogs. Ken removes the mystery of starting your own plants from seed by revealing the tips and tricks that horticulturists use to successfully turn a packet of dry, lifeless appearing, seeds into healthy young transplants for our spring gardens. A lifetime of successes and not a few failures have left Ken with a host of interesting and often humourous anecdotes and ideas that will have his audience rushing to their basement light tables to “Dally in the Dirt” in the dead of winter.

This winter meeting will be held via Zoom. Registration by e-mail to is required to obtain the Zoom link to access the meeting, by 5 pm, Monday, January 8th. Cost is $5 for non-members, or become a member and enjoy our full 2024 program for $15.
