Nova Scotia Summer: A Horticultural Epic Tour

January 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In the summer of 2016, speaker Sean James and his team went to Guysborough, NS to install an eco-landscape and came back, and went down and came back… and so on. This resulted in upgrading an incredibly biodiverse 120-year-old mill pond. Along the way, they visited a litany of botanical gardens… and more. At a time when many of us are starved for travel, the replay promises to be fascinating. Named by Landscape Ontario as 2020 and 2021’s Garden Communicator of the Year, gardening has been Sean James’ hobby and profession for almost 40 years. A graduate of Niagara Parks School of Horticulture, a Master Gardener, writer, and teacher, Sean focuses on eco-gardening techniques, having grown up surrounded by nature near Crawford Lake in Campbellville. He has spoken from the Maritimes to Seattle and landscaped from Nova Scotia to California. Among other things, Sean has had the honour to be part of creating the new Ontario Landscape Tree Planting Guide, the Grow-Me-Instead guide, the Ontario Horticultural Apprenticeship Curriculum and the national Red Seal Occupational Standard, and the Master Gardeners Reference Manual.  He has been the Ontario spokesperson for Garden Days Canada and has appeared on many radio shows and on television. Sean owns ‘Sean James Consulting & Design’ and instructs at Mohawk College. This presentation will be a  free Webinar.  There is no registration required.  A recording will be available for members only for 14 days after the presentation.  Please consider supporting the future activities of the OHS though renewing your membership or joining for $15/yr, or though a donation.
