20 members of staff representing all 4 of our divisions attended the CanWest – Western Canada’s Premier Horticulture Expo held at Tradex in Abbotsford in September. This was a great opportunity to see outdoor equipment demos, visit trade show booths and open house tours at nearby nurseries. We attended seminars and hands-on workshops from Treatment for Invasive Species to Building Stone Fire Pits.
The theme of the show was “island” and there were some great booth interpretations of the theme. Amber Mottle entered into the container on our behalf. She made an incredible underwater display using a variety of sedum, grasses, and even air plants.
Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable two days with lots of great information to take away and implement into our program.
