Book Club Inaugural Meeting – September 19

Amy Steele Kempster is setting up a book club. An inaugural meeting is set for Tuesday September 19th at 2pm, to decide on how to run the club and to find out how much interest there is.

They need to decide on things like:

  • When should the meetings be (likely on Tuesdays at 2pm since that’s available) and how often (monthly, weekly, bi-weekly)?
  • What sort of books should they read? Fiction, non-fiction, or specific genres. Or have the members choose books on a rotation basis.
  • Should they take turns reading and discussing a book, particularly if multiple copies aren’t available, or wait for everyone to have read it before discussing?

Please show your interest by coming to the inaugural meeting.

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!
Danielle Buklis
