Comox Valley Horticultural Society discusses xeriscape gardening

The guest speaker for the Comox Valley Horticultural Society’s March 19 meeting is Zac Kregosky, sharing some valuable and timely information about xeriscape gardening.

As our summers get hotter and water resources lessen, it will be even more important that we make the right gardening decisions. Choosing the right plant for the right location is key to creating a thriving garden. A garden should provide as much enjoyment as possible, while impacting our environment as little as possible. Zac believes in and practises being a lazy gardener. His passion for plants started with a plant sciences biology degree pursuit, solidified at the horticulture program at Malaspina, advancing to nursery manager at the Vernon Art Knapp, and now thrives at our local Art Knapp’s location, and also runs his own gardening business. Doors open at the Courtenay Filberg at 6:30 p.m. Guests are welcomed at $5, but memberships are available for $20 (single) and $30 (family).
