Dear Club Member
Only 50 days until spring so here is a bit of Club news to help you through until planting season.

  1. Our AVGVG 2014 Weigh Off video is done and has been uploaded to YouTube. This video is about 5 minutes long and features a wide and varied cast of characters. You can check this out at the following link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymqN3oAi2Ac
  2. We have struck a deal with Lahave Street Hydroponics and Garden Center that gets club members 10 % off their purchases at both their Bridgewater and New Minas locations. They have a wide variety of products such as nutrients, growing media and fungicides. Simply show your membership card to receive the discount in either location (new cards will be out with your 2015 Seed Pack). All of their information can be found at their web site : http://lahavestreethydroponics.ca/

    The winner will be announced in early February and will be included in you annual seed pack.

  6. Seed Pack : We will be putting the 2015 seed packs together the middle of February so if you have anything to be included please contact either Gerard ( gansems@xcoutry.tv ) or Paul (kpphalen@hotmail.com) to make arrangements. We would like to thank all those who have contributed so far this year.

A big thank you to Brian Kenneally who has done a fantastic job on seed sales and raffles this year. A full report of Brian’s activities will be available at our annual meeting. Remember its only 58 days till spring so now is the time to plan and get all of those strategies in place for a very successful 2015 growing season.
