2018 Report, Juniors – Julia Peisley, Chairperson

Junior Horticultural Society Report 2018


This year we had a total of 15 members, 14 new and 1 repeat. Three families moved during the summer.


Our seeds (mostly vegetable) were donated by the “Seed Library” from the Pakenha Library. Seeds were also donated by parents and the community. Daisy and marigold seeds were purchased from Giant Tiger in Arnprior and a jug of Miracle Grow Seed from the dollar store in Arnprior.


Soil, potato tubers and starter greenhouse for seedlings were purchased at Canadian Tire in Arnprior. Pots trays and containers were donated by Spartan Gardens. Marigolds, daisies and tomatoes all started indoor from seed by me.


We did not judge the children's gardens this year due to the hot humid weather with little rain. I did not think if fair to judge a child's garden when Mother Nature did not provide well.


Our flower and vegetable show at the Pakenham Fair was held on August 18. Three families participated, which was 7 children in total.


I am and was much obliged to take on this role....Pakenham Junior Horticultural Society and the Pakenham Public School Garden Club. Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity.
