Happy New Year gardeners

The new year has started very chilly. A hard frost has settled on the gardens but it still looks very promising.

The new executive team has started planning activities and setting important dates for the coming year.

Current members will be receiving an email in February with registration information. Any member who does not wish to renew their plot is asked to contact the president as soon as possible.

Anyone new to the gardens who would like to put their name on the waitlist is also asked to email the president.

General Meeting Reminder

Don’t forget, make it out if you can to collaborate and communicate with your BCOGS Executive Team and fellow members.

Tuesday, April 12th, 7:00 pm at Mountain View Elementary School (740 Smith Ave).
