Meeting 1: We had our first meeting May 8, 2019 at the Schaeffer home. We had a great first meeting. We played a fun game about veggies. We discussed recipes that included our favourite fruits and veggies. We had our elections, which resulted in River as President, Olivia as Vice President, Caitlyn as Secretary, and Morgan as Press Reporter.
Meeting 2: We all met in Dunnville at the bridge parking lot on May 25 with the Dunnville Horticultural Society for the town planting day. We were given a bed to plant and we all worked hard to get it done.
Meeting 3: On June 22 we were very lucky to be able to visit Shared Harvest Farm in Dunnville. We met at the farm and the farmer took us on a tour. He explained all about the way things grow without the use of pesticides and how much better it is for our bodies. This was a great experience.
Meeting 4: On July 10 we met at Judy’s Greenhouse. Judy always does cool things with us. This year we got to build bird houses. We took them home unfinished and then painted them and decorated them the way we wanted and entered them in Achievement Day. During the meeting, we learned about home remedies to control mildew on plants. Thank you to Margret of Judy’s Greenhouses for all you do for this club.
Meeting 5: On September 19 we met at Windecker Woods Flower Farm. We toured the flowers and learned about different types of beds and about flowers from seeds and flowers from bulbs. These beds of flowers were beautiful and as we went through the flowers Petra cut flowers for each of us to take home a beautiful bouquet of fresh cut flowers.
Meeting 6: September 19 we had our Achievement Day with the Dunnville Horticulture Society at the Dunnville Optimist Hall.
