DUNNVILLE—Seems like the switch has been flipped and just like that, spring is upon us! The Dunnville Horticultural Society (DHS)’s March program night was a very busy one, with Kelly and Troy from Moodie Bees giving a very educational talk on bees. Representing the Haldimand-Norfolk Beekeepers Association, they provided great insight into the complex and interesting life of bees. In addition, they explained the whys and hows of helping these little critters to thrive in our area. Thank you, Kelly and Troy! We had 75 people sign in that night, making for a busy and packed house. It was also the final night to qualify for the early bird membership draw. This was won by John Cruickshank. Don’t worry if you didn’t get in on the early bird draw … you can still purchase a membership at the Lions Home and Garden Show! We will be there all-day Thursday (April 18) and Saturday (April 20). Come visit us and check out our booth and enjoy one of our great mini-demos on the Saturday!

Our next program night is also Thursday, April 18, 2019 when we will be featuring a wonderful screening of the documentary film titled The Gardener. This movie follows the work of one man’s passionate pursuit of perfection in his own 20-acre garden in Quebec. We will enjoy popcorn and other theatre-style goodies that night!

At DHS we are gearing up for a busy spring of planting, weeding and tending our town flower beds. We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers. Join us and see what our club is all about. You are sure to make new friends and learn something great … not to mention enjoy some excellent refreshments! So come on out to our next program night! DHS meets every third Thursday at the Optimist Club Hall, 101 Main St. from 7-9 p.m. Or visit us online at our Facebook page or website For questions or comments, contact myself (President) at 416-566-9337 or
