Here at the Steinbach and Area Garden Club, we are excited about our special Manitoba 150 “Come Grow with Us” Event that we are hosting on Saturday, April 18. This event will include presentations by local gurus, a keynote presentation by Lyndon Penner, an opportunity to have questions answered by seasoned gardeners, etc.
The Opening Ceremony will include the unveiling of a Regal Celebration Maple Tree that we will be planting at the Mennonite Heritage Village to commemorate Manitoba’s 150 Anniversary and a special presentation honoring Fred Kaita whose work over the last 70 years has added so much beauty to public gardens in South East Manitoba .You will recall that Fred Kaita was a founding member of the Steinbach and Area Garden Club.
We are delighted to be partnering with our South East Artists Group to hold a special Manitoba 150 Art Exhibit titled “Gardens Through the Eyes of an Artist” during our event. Twelve artists from south east Manitoba will be exhibiting their art works that have been inspired by gardens they have seen. As well, one of the artists will be working on a painting in progress during the event.
