We are so lucky that the entertaining and passionate Egan Davis has agreed to come back to speak at the Grandview Garden Club. This month's talk is about how to recognize what is eating your plants and what you can do about it.
Egan is a leader in the professional horticulture industry, a qualified Red Seal Horticulturalist. He is the chief instructor for the Horticulture Training Program at the University of British Columbia and is a delightful and knowledgeable speaker.
With past experience at VanDusen Botanical Garden, Park & Tilford Gardens, and the Mendel Floral conservatory in Saskatoon, Egan has a unique background focused on public and on botanical gardens. For his entire career, Egan has also run a residential garden consultation, design, and build company. As a board member of HortEdBC, Egan has contributed to the industry and has a keen interest in promoting the Red Seal certificate in BC.
As usual, we will meet in the "LRC" — the Britannia Learning Resources Centre, which is under the VPL library. As you're walking toward the library, veer left, walk alongside the library, and you'll come to a ramp entry to the LRC on your right. We start at 7:00 and end before 9:00.
Do bring your friends, your gardening questions and concerns, and your ideas for topics or speakers for upcoming meetings. We always have tea and goodies and a few door prizes.
