    Topic: Trees Add Property Value

    There are many beneficial reasons to include trees on our properties, but did you know that mature trees increase property values? Master Gardener Pat de Valence will share the specifics with us, and also provide insights into tree selection, location and care.

    • McConaghy Seniors' Centre, 10100 Yonge Street

    Guest Speaker: Heinke Thiessen
    Topic: Garden Dreams and Great Designs

    November is a good time to plan for the future, and with this in mind, Heinke will provide advice for garden designs and plant selection to help ensure year round interest with less maintenance - something for us to dream about over winter!
    Heinke Thiessen, who thrilled us with her winter container designs last November, has been a gardening enthusiast since her early childhood in Quebec. Retired proprietor of Perennial Pleasures Landscape Design, Heinke is currently a horticultural design judge accredited by the Royal Botanical Garden, and President of Credit Valley Horticultural Society in Mississauga.
