2018 GVGO Spring Seminar


I dropped a cheque off this week and booked a date for the GVGO seminar. The seminar will be on the 21st. of April in the Hamlet of Solina at the community hall. Sorry about the later date but there were date conflicts with the hall and product suppliers. This location has been popular with the membership as it's fairly central and within easy access of the 401 and now the 407. As always lunch will be provided.

Hi pumpkin.pal,


What time on April 21th does the seminar start, because were a hour and a half away and I don't want to be late. Is anyone coming from out of province, if they can get in touch with me about Sevin.


Thank you

Simon Southwell

Usually we try to start about 9:00-9:30 but it invariably starts at 10:00. People like to get their products and pack them away first. Hall opens at 7:30 for set up.

Registration will start at about 8:15. Start of meeting is usually @ 9:15-9:30 am. The seminar is free & so will lunch. We hope to have a few of today's top seeds out to raffle off to some lucky members. Tickets will be available during morning registration, break & lunch. Draw will be held after the afternoon break.

Our President Phil Joynson will announce more details about the seminar in the upcoming newsletter.

    It is seed drying time of year. Keep your GVGO seed packs in mind. I am looking after sorting and sending out the packs this year. Lets all work together to make them great. Send in all kinds of seeds. Everyone is looking for different things in a seed pack. You must be a paid up member for 2020 to receive your seed pack. Here is where to mail them to: Jeff Warner 487413 Aidie Creek Garden Road Englehart, Ontario P0J 1H0 Send me an email or msg so i know something is coming and will let you know that i have received it. aidiejeff @ ntl.sympatico.ca
