New & Noteworthy


SPRING IS IN THE AIR INDEED!

What a great meeting we had at Westminster Canterbury!

Cole Burrell galvanized us to embrace sustainability in our backyard habitats by putting the "right plant in the right place". Fran Carden inspired all of us to force branches, bulbs and blooms. And we did, with 98 entries! There were 31 AGC members and 4 Westminster non - AGC residents that entered specimens. Class Commendations and plenty of ribbons were awarded. The Royalty award went to Colleen Grant for her Star Magnolia and Best in Show went to Betsey Greene from WCBR for her orchid. We had approximately 30 Westminster Canterbury residents visit the Flower Show and purchase our notecards. Thank you to all the volunteers that stepped up to make this show so spectacular.

CONSERVATION

It is not too late to start! Consider giving up (or at least dramatically reducing) your use of plastics for Lent. The Church of England thinks this is a great idea! Click HERE to read more
