Annual General Meeting of the Bowen Island Garden Club and address by Conway Lum
This will take place at the Gallery in Artisan Square on Monday, January 20th at 1.00pm. Once the business side of the meeting has been dealt with we are pleased to announce that our speaker is Conway Lum of the Mandeville Garden Centre, now GardenWorks@Mandeville.
His topic will be ‘Plants for Winter Interest’ with a digression into new garden plant diseases of concern to West Coast Gardeners.
Conway has addressed the Club before to rave reviews. He is a feisty, entertaining speaker. He has asked particularly for questions from the floor. So please think about what might have gone wrong in your garden last year and formulate a question from which Conway can find you a solution.
Conway graduated from UBC with a B.Sc. in Plant Science (ornamental horticulture) and Botany. At Mandeville Gardens he has moved from the nursery and now spearheads the Information Desk and in-house seminars and workshops.
He is the winner of numerous awards including the “Garden Communicator of the Year Award” by the BC Landscape and Nursery Association and the “Environmental Star Award” from the City of Burnaby for European Chafer Education.
Conway is well represented on the Internet with a number of pieces of interest to our members. Get on-line and sample what he has to say!
