Celebrate Canadian Gardening with New Wave Horticulture – May 9

Subject: re: Celebrate Canadian Gardening event tomorrow, Tuesday May 9th at 7PM, Jean Pigott Place Ottawa!
Date: Mon, 8 May 2017 17:23:18 -0400
From: info@compost.org

Hello,
We’re hoping you and the members of your association will be interested in an event planned for tomorrow at Jean Pigott Place in Ottawa, at 7PM!

Tickets are $20 and are available at: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/celebrate-gardening-in-canada-with-albert-mondor-tickets-33082268957
All proceeds are being directed to the Ottawa Food Bank and Debra Dynes Family House.

The speaker is celebrity garden expert Albert Mondor, and his topic, New Wave Horticulture, is described below.
New Wave Horticulture is an original, surprising and sometimes downright mystifying way to grow edible and ornamental plants where normally they perhaps would not grow. It’s not necessarily avant-garde technology, but rather a vision of an utilitarian urban horticulture, focused on recovery, recycling as well as addressing food and environmental challenges of tomorrow. Green walls, urban agriculture, foodscaping, composting, tiny plants and gardens, reclaimed and recycled landscaping materials and phytotechnology are a few topics Albert Mondor will discuss.

We hope to see you there!
