August General Meeting: Guest Speakers Dianne and Gary Westlake

August 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Dianne and Gary WestlakeThrough photos and storytelling, Master Gardeners Dianne and Gary Westlake hope to inspire tonight’s attendees by sharing some of the ways they have saved money creating and maintaining the beautiful gardens and garden artifacts on their one-acre property in Peterborough, which has been featured in news articles and Gardens Central magazine.

When gardening enthusiasts Dianne and Gary Westlake aren’t busy tending their own extensive gardens, they share their experiences with others through methods including youtube videos, articles in the Peterborough Examiner, and presentations to horticultural groups. They can be found online at
