Event Details

After retirement, Gary met and married Dianne and moved to Peterborough. The two of them look after an acre of property on a hill overlooking the city. They decided to join the Master Gardeners several years ago at Dianne’s suggestion (Gary says Dianne is the brains of the operation). Master Gardeners are volunteers, who help others garden and in doing so the Master Gardeners improve their own skills and knowledge. For a couple of years, Gary was a director on the board of Master Gardeners of Ontario. Dianne is the Coordinator for the Peterborough and Area Master Gardeners and Dianne and Gary were Editors of the Master Gardeners of Ontario Newsletter for several years. Both are past presidents of Horticultural Societies and Dianne is past Director of OHA District 4. A few years ago, they were awarded the Silver Medal from the OHA. They are also old (or oldish) and have been gardening for a long, long, long time. Over the years the garden has changed to suit their tastes and capabilities. Very few gardens outlive their gardeners so it is best to enjoy the activity of gardening rather than trying to create a finished garden. Dianne and Gary will suggest some strategies for growing old with your garden gracefully.
