At Kildara Farms

We are delighted to have Linda Gilkeson back this year, with all new topics to educate and entertain! Linda is always a popular and entertaining speaker with natural solutions to our most pressing garden issues. The two hour lectures allow plenty of time for questions from the audience.

Both talks will be held at Kildara Farms, not far from the nursery. For registration please see below.

Please note: Lunch is not provided but feel free to bring your own. Deep Cove Market is not far from Kildara Farms and is a great place for a tasty bowl of soup or a sandwich.


Morning: 11am – 1pm

Afternoon: 2pm – 4pm
PROTECTING AND ATTRACTING BENEFICIAL INSECTS

From pollinators to predators, many insects are beneficial to us and our gardens.
