Omemeee Horticulture Meeting Features Avid Senior Gardeners

Speaker Information: Following retirement, Gary met and married Dianne, who had been a teacher in Havelock, and they moved to Peterborough. The two of them look after an acre of property on a hill overlooking the city. They decided to join the Master Gardeners 10 years ago on Dianne's suggestion (Gary says Dianne is the brains of the operation). Master Gardeners, are volunteers, who help other gardeners and in doing so the Master Gardeners improve their own skills and knowledge. For a couple of years,  Gary was a Director on the board of Master Gardeners of Ontario. Dianne is the Coordinator for the Peterborough and Area Master Gardeners and Dianne and Gary are the Editors of the Master Gardeners of Ontario Newsletter. Both are past presidents of Horticultural Societies and Dianne is on the board of OHA District 4 and is editor of the District 4 newsletter.
They will tell you that they are also old - or oldish and have been gardening for a long time. Over the years their garden has changed to suit their tastes and capabilities. Very few gardens outlive their gardeners so it is best to enjoy the activity of gardening rather than trying to create a finished garden. Dianne and Gary will suggest some strategies for growing old with your garden gracefully. See more info at --
