Garden fun – Thirty students learned about horticulture in the Clifford and District Horticulture Society’s Let it Grow program. The six-week program provided a hands-on introduction to water movement in the soil and plants, making new plants, growing plants from cuttings, establishing plants, seeding a vegetable garden and helping bees and butterflies. One student said they liked “bringing home things to watch them grow.” Parents commented on how great it was to interact with their child on horticulture topics. “A big thanks goes to Vic Palmer, who shared his knowledge and to the Town of Minto for their support,” society officials state. Scarlett Peters, Brexton Rock and Malik Yemen work on a planting project.
