2013 Western Canadian Gardening Championships.
We are proud to announce that we have been chosen as host gardens for the 2013 Western Canadian Gardening Championships!
This is going to be a incredible event showcasing some of western Canada's top gardeners. It will also be a great way to meet others and share ideas.
This year the events have changed slightly as in the past more emphasis was put on plant arrangements and design than gardening skills. So this year we are focusing on primary garden skills.
The three categories this year are:
1) lawn maintenance - mowing and snipping skills. We will have an eye on detail and straight lines
2) shrub pruning- this is the artistic portion of the event
3) Weed identification and removal - This category will hold the most points. How fast and thorough will be awarded top marks.
Also, because we are a non-profit garden all entrance fees will be divided between the top 3 gardeners. So you will have more than just the coveted title!
Another first for this year is we are allowing people 4 hour practice runs up to the day before the event. This way you can familiarize yourself with the gardens and the event structure. You may book ahead otherwise it is first come, first serve. So don't be disappointed and book early.
Pm me if you want to register and or book practice dates. We understand that this event might not be for everybody so You may swing by and try the event format and gardens before deciding if you want to register.
Hope to see you all there.
