The next meeting of the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society is on Tuesday, March 21st. The meeting will be held in person at the Johnny Leroux Community Arena (second floor), 10 Warner-Colpitts Lane, Stittsville, at 7:30 pm. If you prefer to attend the meeting on Zoom, please send a request a few days before to [email protected] and the Zoom link will be sent to you.
Our speaker tonight is Master Gardener Mary Ann Van Berlo, who will present her talk, “Water Features for Every Backyard.” A pond, waterfall, or fountain adds another dimension to your garden. The sound of running water is relaxing and will draw more wildlife to your garden. Mary Ann will give us an overview of the construction steps for installing a water feature, cover maintenance, as well as how to deal with potential problems that may arise. There are so many styles of water features. Perhaps one of the designs that Mary Ann shares will entice you to add a pond or fountain to your bit of paradise.
Mary Ann Van Berlo is an avid gardener who has a 2.4 acre garden on the St. Lawrence River, which is part of the 1000 Islands and Rideau Canal Garden Trail. Since the Trail opened in June 2015, Mary Ann has welcomed many visitors and bus tours to her garden. In June 2017, Mary Ann’s garden was featured in Ontario Gardener Magazine.
