Welcome to 2019! The Norwood and District Horticultural Society (NDHS) Board Members have worked together to provide a list of excellent speakers and activities for this coming year.
During the long, cold and dark winter months it helps to remind ourselves that "Happiness is having something to look forward to!". We only have a few months until we witness a new gardening year starting with Canada Blooms in March, the Peterborough Garden show at the end of April and our annual Plan Sale in May.
NDHS may be small in numbers; however, you can have a lot of fun! There is a wealth of knowledge within our communities and society to tap into. Last year our members had a number of events to sow seeds of caring and sharing for our environment. Members joined together to decorate the outside of the town hall for Norwood's first Festival of Trees, repotted plants and held a successful plant sale, planted the 21 barrels in Norwood for all to enjoy. NDHS took part in the Warkworth Lilac Festival at the end of May, Showcase Norwood in June and visited the True North Day Lilies and Meadow Ville farms.
This year efforts are in the works to obtain some grant money to help with the creation of a pollinator friendly garden. Your support to sow seeds of encouragement for all to learn more about horticulture and the environment we live will assist with the objectives of this organization and communities.
I look forward to learning and taking part in the horticulture events with you and representing the NDHS as your President.
Yours in horticulture,
