Wed.May.28 - Potluck Social & Special Guest

Hi everyone,

Plant Sale
Our plant sale has been posted on our our blog here and our Facebook group here.
We invite you to share these links far and wide! :)

Potluck & Guest Speaker
Wed.May.28 is our last meeting of the season and we'll have a busy night! We'll start with our pot luck to get our strength up and then we'll review the fine details of our plant sale while we eat and visit!  We'll finish off our year in style with Stephanie Appleby-Jones (her interesting talk is outlined below).

Looking Ahead
Next season, this club is in need of some new volunteers to help keep it awesome!!! There are 3 new programming coordinator positions being created for next year and the position of treasurer is open for a new volunteer.  Programming coordinators will be organizing guest speakers for 6 meetings and the treasurer will be handling all the moola!  Please contact me at to volunteer - a small amount of your time makes a huge difference!

      • Presentation Title: Green Technology
      • Description: I will talk about green walls and green roofs.  I'll discuss the installation and care of hydroponic interior walls, a bit about the installation and plants in the exterior wall.  I'll move on to green roofs, some history, and the research that the Lundholm lab is doing with Barrens plants and other species.   
      • Bio: I had many years of horticulture experience before I went to school (floral, garden centre, landscaping).  I taught gardening and composting classes for HRM.  I have a Horticulture Diploma (2006) and a Bachelor of Technology Environmental Horticulture (2009) from Dalhousie Agricultural Campus (formerly Nova Scotia Agricultural College). While at school, I taught in the Garden Centre Training classes at the college. I worked at the Landscape Specialist for three years at the NSCC Centre for the Built Environment. I am currently a MSc Candidate at Saint Mary's University, planning to defend my thesis in August.  My thesis is titled: The effects of Ascophyllum nodosum (Norwegian kelp), fertilizer, and compost on seed germination, growth, health, and drought tolerance of green roof plants.  My Master's work has included a greenhouse experiment and a green roof installation using vegetated plant mats.
