What’s the Problem? Is the Nefarious Culprit Insect Disease Drought? Accurately Diagnose Garden Ailments.
Speaker Linda Gilkeson wants to know if, when you find a problem with one of your crops, you really know what that problem is. How can you tell whether the nefarious culprit is an insect, a disease, or an environmental disorder? She’ll show you how to diagnose accurately any ailments that may be coming between you and that fresh salad, and how to treat them organically.

NHS Spring 2017 Plant Sale

Our Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, May 6th was a great success.
Thank you all for supporting our sale. Proceeds will help a deserving student studying Horticulture at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo.

PLANT SALE REVIEW
Our Sale at Nanaimo North Town Centre took place on May 6th this year. Though Spring was late and the Sale earlier than last year, the plants looked good and we sold more than last year. We still have bulbs to sell in the Fall.
Thank You to all who donated plant material for our Sale. Many Thanks also to the Ladies and the Gentlemen who assisted with plant transportation, set-up, pricing and sales as well as hauling books to the Sale. We sold a few books and will have more for sale at our June Meeting. The Sale would not have happened at all without the help and energy of many Volunteers. Bless All of You.
Thanks Again,
Denise Callingham

Watch for the details of our 2018 Spring Plant Sale next May.
