Ten members attended the January General Meeting and the minutes have been emailed.  

Of note - there are 2 garden related conferences coming up.  The first is the National Farm to School Conference, May 15-17 in Victoria.  This one is on the island, so no ferries!  If you are interested or know of someone who might be, please share the link with them.  

The second conference is presented by the BC Council of Garden Clubs, of which we have been a member since the garden's inception.  BCCGC is offering a free Visioning Workshop in Surrey on February 23rd. If you happen to be on the mainland, this will be a great learning opportunity.   

We still need a volunteer to manage the Mason Bees.  This is a simple chore and ideal for someone not able to do heavier work, like blackberry slaying.  A job description has been provided by email to all members.  

Thanks and Happy Gardening!
