The first two weeks of June are going to be busy ones for the Deep River and Area Horticultural Society. There are 3 events: a lecture, a workshop and our Fourth Annual Plant-a-rama event.
Award-winning local photographer Don Beauprie will share tips on how to photograph nature’s beauty and capture that prefect photo. Don’s photos have been featured in nature and gardening magazines, as well as the book he wrote and on the cover of Lee Valley Tools catalogue. His photo entry of crocuses in last year’s photo contest category “caught in the rain” adorns the cover of the 2016 Society’s yearbook. The talk takes place at the North Renfrew Long Term Care Centre – Drop-In Centre at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7. Doors are open at 6:45 p.m.
A great Incredible Edible Volunteer Opportunity: Our fourth annual Plant-a-rama! We will meet near the cemetery at the corner of St. Mary’s Lane and McElligott Drive on June 11th at 10 a.m.
We will be preparing and tidying out our old beds, maybe building a second raised bed, planting and working on our food forest.
We will have a free lunch for volunteers. (If you are a vegetarian, let Jen know.)
Dress to get dirty and for the weather. Don’t forget work gloves, bug spray and water.
If you can (and want), please bring any of the following:
- Tools like shovels, rakes, hoes, hammers, screwdrivers etc.
- Plants to Donate
- Food to share for BBQ
The more the merrier! Please feel free to come for only part of the day. Even an hour of your time will make a BIG difference.
