DUNNVILLE—I love this time of year, when the garden centres swing their doors wide open. It’s my therapy to walk among the colourful plants, drinking in the earthy aroma! It’s exciting to peruse the aisles, scoping out what is new and interesting, and planning out just which corner of my garden I can squeeze in something else. Every year I strive to create a colourful masterpiece in my own little corner of the world.
At last month’s Dunnville Horticultural Society (DHS)’s program night, we enjoyed a screening of the movie “The Gardener”. It left us mesmerized and inspired! This month, on May 16, we will welcome Adam Koziel of Earthgen. He will be sharing his insights on growing truffles in Haldimand County … yes, truffles!
We are excited to see how things are progressing with the rehabilitation work at the Thompson Creek Eco Centre. The controlled burn went extremely well, and we look forward to the planting of wildflowers over the coming weeks. This area is an ecological gem and it will be exciting to watch the educational component come into fruition this year.
