Monthly Garden Club Meetings & Parlour Shows

PENINSULA GARDEN CLUB UPDATE

FEBRUARY, 2021

Your executive is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 protocols as they impact our club and our ability to hold meetings.

As the Mary Winspear Center is still closed for most meetings, we are moving along with attempting speaker presentations on the Zoom platform.

Zoom presentations for meetings

As we had a few difficulties with our Feb 8 meeting we will try again on February 10 our first Zoom speaker presentation with David Spencer of Applied Bio-Nomics on West Saanich Road.  He will be talking about Gardening Techniques That Encourage Beneficial Insects.

Please remember that all Zoom presentations will be recorded and the recordings available on the website as soon as possible after the meeting for those members who do not wish to “chime in” on Zoom.

Important dates and schedules on Web site

General, Executive and plant sale meeting dates are on the web site along with the Parlour Show schedule and Speakers list for 2021.

Virtual Parlour Shows

Don’t forget that we are having Virtual Parlour Shows every month from February on.  Each month will have two categories, one specific, and one open category.  See the posted categories on the web site under “This Month”. Please take up to two photographs of the plants you wish to enter in both categories (1200 x 1800 pixels, Jpeg format) and submit them to Bonita Elliott b2elliott@shaw.ca, before the scheduled date of that month’s meeting.  Ensure that your name is provided with your pictures as well.  Have fun and join in!

Please don’t hesitate to contact your executive with questions or concerns.
