On Monday, March 18, Janelle Gardner will be the guest speaker at the first in person meeting of the year. Special door prizes will also be given as we move from the winter months into spring.

Janelle is a gardener, a story-teller and a volunteer at the Comox Valley Horticultural Society. Janelle will talk about gardens in other continents with a particular focus on our native blue camassia. A plant with an interesting history given its connection to indigenous peoples, agriculture, land development and the transcontinental movement of plants.
