Members-only event

If you have had the chance to hear Jim talk and share his knowledge, you won't want to miss this event. "I was almost in tears with laughter listening to Jim share his experiences at an event last month" says Colleen McCracken, Executive Director of the Calgary Horticultural Society. She continues, "there was such a practical advice included in his fun presentation. I picked up two solid tips that I plan to use in my garden this season."

Come join us and 'Get the Dirt' with Jim Hole, a Members-only event. Join Jim Hole for a breakfast and chat on Sunday, April 30 at 8:30am. Click here to login to your account and purchase tickets.
