A Calgary Gardener’s Diary
This presentation by Kath Smyth, Horticulturist with the Calgary Horticultural Society, will inspire and urge those with green thumbs into the promise of spring and summer gardening. And even if you are not a gardener, come and catch the excitement of the new season just around the corner.
This presentation is the result of reading a very dear friend’s garden diary. It can be impossible to remember everything from year to year without jotting a few things down! Therefore, keeping a garden diary is a great way to build a store of information that will help you consistently improve your garden.
Some of the questions to consider for your garden diary could include:
Do you work your garden on a schedule?
What do you do this month?
What’s your favorite garden tool?
When do you prune?
When do you divide your perennials?

Tracking the Big Five – an African Wildlife Adventure
Visiting five African countries over 28 days, Joyce Travis and Cec Avery saw and photographed more wildlife than most tourists ever see. In addition to seeing the Big Five (elephant, cape buffalo, rhinoceros, lion and leopard) they also saw the Little Five and the Ugly Five. Two “kills” were witnessed (it is the jungle after all), they captured a rare photograph of the secretive Small Spotted Genet and were entertained by competing animal groups at the water holes. Invited into Masai warrior homes, they got a good sense of village life and even learned a few new dances. Join us to share a raw and exciting look at African wildlife.
