Mountains to the Sea


February 2015

January saw the commencement of the first full year programme for this new group after some introductory sessions last year.
At our first meeting we explored mechanics and ways to avoid using floral foam in designs as well as reviewing the Show Schedule requirements for one of our local agricultural Shows.
February’s meeting looked at Modern designs to help members prepare for Newcastle Regional Show and next month we will be looking at what the Easter Show has on offer.
Our new meeting venue, Toronto Workers Club, is proving very successful and I thank members of the Toronto Garden Club for their continued support as well.
