We are excited to announce a gardening themed speaker series in partnership with the Silver Springs Garden. The series will feature a different topic each month and will be hosted at either the Parkdale Community Centre or the Silver Springs Community Centre (see table below for more information). The speakers are all very knowledgeable and passionate about their respective topics. The first speakers are Parkdale’s own, Dani and Leigh Smythe from CROP (located on Parkdale Crescent adjacent to Lazy Loaf & Kettle and Prime Tune shop).
Please consider joining us for one or many information packed evenings. Tickets are $15 (incl. GST) and available online or at the door.
Additional information and speaker biographies are available on the PCA website. If you have any questions, please contact Moira Balkwill at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (403)462-6676.
