Next Meeting - Thursday, May 8, 2014

Malcolm Geast - 'The Wonder of Insects in the Garden'
Our May speaker takes the viewpoint that insects are not to be feared or disliked, but should be enjoyed as much as the plants in the garden. In his presentation, he will talk about some of his personal encounters with spiders, grasshoppers, flies, and an assortment of beetles and other insects, and will draw from over 5,000 photos that he has taken in his garden and around southern Ontario.
Malcolm is a Past-President of the East York Garden Club and currently serves as the Treasurer for the Leasid
