Seeds of Diversity 20th Annual AGM

Dimanche 8 Novembre 2015          1 pm to 3:30
Doon Heritage Village, 10 Huron Rd.
Kitchener, ON

Join board, staff and other members at our Annual AGM, this year being held in Kitchener. All are welcome, and members get in free. Otherwise, admission $5.

Enjoy bidding on our many silent auction items, great for Christmas gifts! Or gifting to yourself! They range from free admissions, to seed kits, to restaurant and store certificates and baskets.

Special guest speaker is well-known garden writer Lorraine Johnson. In the more than 15 years that Lorraine has been writing books and articles, she has become known for her unconventional outlook on the world of gardening. Advocating for organics in the days when synthetic chemicals ruled, writing about native plants before most people had heard the term, promoting community gardening when politicians were wary of involving people in parks, profiling guerrilla gardens when the idea still sounded vaguely dangerous, Lorraine has always written about marginal subjects on their way to becoming mainstream.

Not easily pigeon-holed, her work is often about the surprising corners where the impulse to nurture and sustain growth intersects with the human need to cultivate meaningful connections—with the earth and with each other. She views gardening as a strenuous conversation with the planet—indeed, as one of the most transformative ways to find our place in the world and what we want that world to be. She’s not afraid to include failures (her own, our own), along with hopes and dreams, in that conversation.

Lorraine’s writing career follows her passionate interests, and her more than 10 published books have covered a broad range of topics—from com- posting and native plant gardening to censorship and travel. Unabashedly an advocate, she has been promoting urban food production for decades not only in her writing but in her involvement with numerous community groups and organizations such as the Toronto Community Garden Network, Toronto Botanic Garden, the American Community Gardening Association, and others.
Lorraine lives in Toronto in a barn-shaped house with three chickens and two cats—and dreams of including a dwarf goat in her backyard.
