Kincardine Horticultural Society hosts District 8 AGM
President Dianne Simpson solicited reports from the secretary, treasurer, goodwill and youth convenors and the Ontario Horticultural Association OHA representative. It was also the last meeting for Linda Jaynes, long-time leader and creative force behind many youth projects. Eisen praised and thanked Jaynes for her hard work and dedication over many years.
Jaynes was presented with two bird house gourds a For Our Youth growing challenge from a few years ago which had been decorated by Eisen with delicate paintings of chickadees and a cardinal. Shantz served on the RDHS executive and led the society as president in three separate terms, most recently , and was involved in the planning and running of a provincial convention and multiple district annual general meetings during her tenures.
She also served on the district executive for several years as Supplies Director. She works tirelessly for the good of the Ripley society and her fellow RDHS members were proud to nominate her for the award. Selecting the top four images for the photo contest turned out to be a very difficult choice with 20 entries depicting local gardens. The winners: Gail Van der Hoek, Joan McLaughlin, Tryntje Eisen and Dianne Simpson, will have their photos featured on blank note cards sets of which are being sold as a fund raising initiative.
Plans are underway for the Christmas meeting in late November, two workshops to make Christmas greenery gnomes Saturday, December 4th: one for the public and a second for members, and orders were taken for the RDHS famous Christmas planters. As the meeting adjourned those in attendance enjoyed chatting while signing up for activities and products. Ripley and area is growing and its horticultural society is always ready to welcome new members.

Since retiring from St. Smyth, whose love of gardening came from days of going with her mom to pick up flowers, has been involved with the Tilbury and District Horticultural Society for years. With a beautifully landscaped property in Tilbury, Smyth said she has had a love of gardening her whole life, and her retirement allowed her to pursue that hobby. As the incoming president of the OHA, she said she was nominated and then acclaimed to the position. There are 19 districts, horticultural societies and 28,plus members in Ontario, according to Smyth, and the organization has not had a convention sinceClair College. The main speaker for the event, who Smyth is very pleased to have at the convention, is David Phillips, a senior climatologist for Environment Canada, and a dynamic speaker. Smyth, with years of experience and knowledge, is set to take on the tasks ahead of her next year as president, convention chair and small business owner.

Club leader Heather Newman supplies local restaurants with her produce, so she knows a thing or two about growing culinary herbs. Who knew? The fresh picked herbs were taken into the kitchen to be chopped and added to butter, dip or bruschetta as everyone invented their own recipe with their favourite herbs. With 10 youth in the kitchen at a time, the other 10 youth were outside split between making lovely smelling lavender or mint sachets and a game of blind tasting or smelling dried spices like paprika, nutmeg, dill, cinnamon, and cilantro, just to name a few. No surprise there. A Hairy Dagger caterpillar crept by as the children sat on a tarp in the grass.
