The Allergy Fighting Garden with Marina Dimitriadis

June 7, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

As a Landscape Designer, Marina Dimitriadis collaborates with her clients to ensure designs are in harmony with special needs. One memorable client request was to reduce the number of plants in a design to accommodate a child’s severe allergies. Marina researched allergy causing plants and found Thomas Leo Ogren’s system for combating allergens based on plant gender. In this presentation she will discuss how allergy sufferers can reduce or eliminate their symptoms by selecting appropriate plants for their gardens.

Marina Dimitriadis is a certified Landscape Designer with Dimitriadis Design Build, a company she and her Landscape Contractor husband run together. In addition, she is a Master Gardener, a part-time professor at Seneca College and a Design Consultant for Evergreen Canada.

All general meetings begin with a welcome and general announcements, which precede the introduction of the guest speaker.

In addition to being provided in a virtual manner, we are planning for this meeting to be simultaneously held at the McConaghy Centre, with the speaker’s presentation projected onto a large screen in the auditorium. Although Covid-protection measures are being relaxed, the majority of our members who participated in a recent survey requested the wearing of masks at indoor society events, so please plan to wear a mask if you would like to attend this event in-person.

In-person attendees will also be able to visit Flower Show exhibits.
