Meeting - Monday, September 29th at 7:30 pm
Meeting Theme: Bring a friend for free
September is the month that we go back to school, start something new and possibly join a new club or activity. Invite – or even better - BRING a neighbour or friend to our meeting, and give them the opportunity to check us out!
Speaker: Lizzie Matheson
Lizzie is an accredited Design Judge, college lecturer, assessor and demonstrator of Art Design and Floral Design. Relocating to England from Scotland in 1984, Lizzie pursued her passion for garden design and floral and art design. She enjoys the challenge of show work and has received top awards in the U.K. including two Individual Gold Medals from Worshipful Company of Gardeners - Sept. 1987 and Sept. 1990; Silver Gilt Medal and individual Gold medal RHS May 2009 and May 2010; and finally the most esteemed Bronze Medal Winner at Royal Chelsea Flower Garden Show 2007. Lizzie moved to Canada in 2010 where she welcomes the challenge of Canadian gardening.
Topic: Designing with the Season
Lizzie has lots of ideas that she shares with flair and enthusiasm. She will teach us to use as much plant material as we can from our own gardens. There will be a total of 6 design pieces on the theme of designing with the season. This means there will be 6 lucky people who will take away one of her designs in the evening raffle. Remember to bring a friend for this special evening.
