Xeriscaping with Native Plants
Time: 1:00pm
Location: Minden Community Centre
55 Parkside St. Minden, ON
The Minden & District Horticultural Society looks forward to seeing you at the April General Meeting. We welcome our special guest, Meike Schipper, whose speaking engagement is entitled 'Xeriscaping with Native Plants'. Xeriscape landscapes are defined as "quality landscaping that conserves water and protects the environment." Meike is a volunteer at Gamiing Nature Centre. Gamiing is pronounced gaa-'ming which is Ojibway meaning "at the shore". Gamiing started about 18 years ago as a follow-up to the Pigeon Lake Environmental Association. Their focus is on stewardship of our natural resources and heritage. They have an extensive trail system where people come to hike, snowshoe or ski and a major Nature Club program for kids and a Nature Club for adults. The program intends to inspire people to change behaviours toward reducing our footprint. Gardening is a large part of that. And with the very hot summer we had in 2016 it is timely to talk about xeriscaping, which basically means making sure that the plants we use and the soil we plant them in do not require water to grow. It is a great way to learn to use native plants, which are those plants that were here before the Europeans arrived and brought their plants. Native plants are adapted to the environment, soil and climate and therefore require not a lot of care. The refreshment for this meeting is Chocolate Choices. Please join us.

Square Foot Gardening
Time: 7:00pm
Location: Minden Community Centre
55 Parkside St., Minden ON
The Minden & District Horticultural Society looks forward to seeing you at the March General Meeting on Tuesday, May 2 at 7:00pm. We welcome our special guest, Gladys Fowler, who's speaking engagement is entitled 'Square Foot Gardening'. Square foot gardening is the practice of dividing the growing area into small square sections (typically 12″ on a side, hence the name). The aim is to assist the planning and creating of a small but intensively planted vegetable garden. It results in a simple and orderly gardening system, from which it draws much of its appeal. Mel Bartholomew coined the term "square foot gardening" in his 1981 book of the same name. The refreshment for this meeting is 'Cheese Please.' We look forward to your tasty cheesy treats.

Video - Toxic Trespass
Location: Your Home
Raising awareness of the connection between your children�s health and our environment. Book a casual in home video showing for your friends. This is not a sales event. As a courtesy to attendees this is a no scent event (includes perfumes, personal care and laundry scents). In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads out to Windsor and Sarnia: Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases. The filmmaker journeys into toxic nightmares all too common in industrialized countries. She meets passionate activists working for positive change, along with doctors and scientists who see evidence of links between environmental pollution and health problems. And she learns how quickly barriers can go up sometimes, when authorities are questioned about the connection between toxins and serious health problems. This film is essential viewing for anyone concerned about the effects of pollutants on our � and our children�s � very DNA.
