'The Olive of the North ~ Sea Buckthorn Trees'
Guest Speaker: Darryl Tims
7:30 pm Royal Canadian Legion, 72 Peace St. Cannington Doors open at 6:30 pm
We hope you are able to join us for the 2020 season.
Guest speaker Darryl Tims is our local grower of sea buckthorn.
Originating in the Himalayas, sea buckthorn has spread across the world and been utilized by many cultures as both a medicine and food. In terms of super foods, these berries are at the top. One little berry has about ten times the vitamin C as an orange and is extremely high in protein, fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Darryl will bring his knowledge and experience on this interesting species.
This season we are offering our Youth Members their very own guest speakers, starting at 7pm. April marks our first Youth Speaker: Garry Patterson. Gary is a well know local daylily grower and part of the Ontario Daylily Society. He will introduce members to a special project/workshop open to all youth members this season - so bring the kids and get signed up!
April Flower Show: please have all entries placed prior to 7pm.
Membership registration table open from 7pm. Member Yearbooks will be available for pickup.
