April General Meeting – “Growing Gracefully: The Evolution of a Garden”

April 4, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Sean JamesAs many a gardener can visually attest to from photos – gardens evolve, year after year. Some plants over-thrive, while others perish. As trees mature, once-sunny spaces become better suited to shade-loving plants. Sean will guide us through this natural progression and offer tips to plan for and embrace change.

Master Gardener Sean James, owner of Sean James Consulting & Design ( is a graduate of Niagara Parks School of Horticulture with nearly forty years of experience in the horticultural industry, including as an author and teacher. Named by Landscape Ontario in 2020 and 2021 as “Garden Communicator of the Year,” Sean’s passion for eco-friendly gardening techniques is evident in his landscape designs as well as in speaking engagements and projects such as Landscape Ontario’s Grow-Me-Instead and Tree Planting guides, and his chairing of the Environmental Stewardship Committee. This will be his third presentation to our society.

All general meetings begin with a welcome and general announcements, which precede the introduction of the guest speaker.
