Next Meeting


Join us on Tuesday, March 5 at the Garth Homer Centre, 813 Darwin Ave.

7:00PM Meeting Begins & Seed Exchange

8:00PM Main Speaker: Jeff de Jong
Topic: The Garden in a Changing World

There is no denying that our World is in transition and so is our home gardens. A warming climate is changing the way we garden. The Pacific Northwest always had its own unique situations with our weather patterns and climate. Are you ready to explore and even embrace changes? Jeff de Jong will be delving into the possibilities of how our gardens can remain our place of pleasure. It’s the perfect time for making choices to keep your garden beautiful. Sometimes small actions are a big deal.

Bio: Jeff de Jong works as a Instructor at UVIC in Continued Education. He developed a Course on Landscape Design with the University which was focused on the home gardener. Along with teaching he can be found speaking for various Garden Groups around BC.

In July, Jeffry will be leading a Botanic Watercolour Course for the renowned MISSA 24, The International Summer School of the Arts.

He continues to find his home garden in Port Angeles a thing of JOY. The garden which is now 7 years old is home to a rain garden, veggies, greenhouse and hundreds of plants celebrating the PNW.
