Our next general meeting is on Wednesday, October 27 by Zoom. You will be sent a link with the meeting details.

Our guest speaker will be Rita Shaw, who will be presenting on saving seeds.

Rita began volunteering at the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) immediately after retiring from teaching high school science in 2010. It was really only after working at the Auxiliary plant sale that she got hooked on gardening. She now grows mainly perennials, along with container vegetables. Many of her plants were sourced through seed exchanges.

In 2019 she was asked to start up the RBG Seed Library and became fascinated with all the different structures that plants have to hold their seeds. She says that “Seed collecting is a really enjoyable pastime because it involves lots of time in the garden during summer and fall, and then leads to seed cleaning during the winter having you reflect back on the gardens you collected from.”
