Our November 13 Annual General Meetingwill take place at the Medicine Hat College in the Crowfoot Room (near North entrance)
It's going to be rich with flowers. Lyndon will be talking about astilbe, bergenia, coral bells, LOTS of saxifrages...
From 7:30 to approximately 9:30 pm with a mid way break for refreshments, Lyndon will be talking about the saxifrage family which has wide appeal. There are many plants in this family for both sun and shade so everyone should get something out of it. Lyndon adds that he’s getting sort of obsessed with saxifrages again. His enthusiasm is infectious!
Lyndon Penner grew up on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and has been gardening since he was three years old. Well known for his passionate, outspoken (and occasionally controversial) opinions, Lyndon has worked in horticulture for much of his life and has written for numerous gardening publications, lectured at many of western Canada's schools and universities, and can regularly be heard on several Canadian radio programs discussing all things plant and garden related. In addition to doing botanical interpretive work in Waterton Lakes National Park, he is also the author of three best selling gardening books written for the short season of the Canadian prairies. Lyndon lives in Lethbridge but says he likes Medicine Hat and their horticultural society very much.
" To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow."
