flowers, the importance of soil health, how to care for flowers in the garden, and more! Meetings
will involve garden planning, flower types, flower farm tour, zoom meetings with other flower
farmers around Ontario, planting at leader’s house and at your own home, arranging bouquets,
entering in the Caledonia fair, fall cleanup and drying flowers.
There will be 6 meetings that are 2 hours each, held at Christine’s house (912 Haldimand Road
