Upcoming Events – May 2024

Happy Month of May Everyone!

Well fellow gardeners, if you’re anything like me, you’re undoubtedly very happy to see the month of April in your rear view mirrors. For if the old adage is true, that April showers bring May flowers, then we should have an explosion of beautiful blooms this month!

Speaking of explosion, thanks to all of you who were able to make it out to our AGM on April 16th. I believe that a very good time was had by all at the beautiful Hudson Yacht Club.

Just a quick reminder to all of our members, that the month of May will be a very active month for the HGC.

Starting us off will be our social evening with other Hudsonites at the Cardinal Micro Brewery on May 7th from 5:00 to 7:00PM. Aptly called Brews on Tues, we will be extolling to the citizens of Hudson the wonderful benefits of being a garden club member. Should be a fun evening and I get the chance to see how you all make out playing flower bingo! Remember to bring a friend!

Next will be our guest speaker, Lorraine Johnson on May 21st, discussing Climate Change and the Garden, at 7:30PM. Don’t forget that we will be meeting at the Hudson Creative Hub on the 21st located at 273 Rue Main.

Then on the 25th, we will be holding our annual Spring Plant Sale at 10:00AM in front of Cardinal Brewery. More about the plant sale later in the month.

Finally, one of our club members, Loretta Baerg will be setting up a table at the Nichoir’s Migratory Bird Day on May 4th. Loretta is working with the David Suzuki Foundation, as a volunteer to promote the creation of native plant butterfly gardens in Hudson. For more details, Loretta can be reached at baerg_loretta@hotmail.ca.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 7th!
