GARDENING INTO THE FUTURE EVENT

Evolving practices to ensure sustainability

Our first Kelowna Garden Club Centennial Event was held on Saturday, February 24, 2024

 

A heartfelt thank you to our amazing gardening community for making “Gardening into the Future” an absolute success!

The day was filled with joy, wisdom, and green inspiration, and it would not have been possible without each and every one of you.

Special applause to our amazing MC, Don Burnett, for steering us through the day with enthusiasm and charm!

A bouquet of gratitude goes out to our brilliant presenters: Mario Lanther, Sigrie Kendrick, Ken Salvail, and Laverne De Yaegher. Your insights and wisdom bloomed in the minds of our attendees, sowing seeds of knowledge for future gardens.
