Ladner Seedy Saturday & Garden Expo 2016 Presents Conway Lum

Ladner Seedy Saturday & Garden Expo 2016 is less than a month away. The executive team from the Ladner Community Garden Society is busy getting everything organized. Today we want to share with you one of our speakers at the event. I have heard Conway Lum speak before and he is an excellent speaker. He can answer any of your gardening questions. His presentation will be about fruit trees and their quirks. Have you had problems with your fruit trees? I know many of us have issues with scab on apples and other fungal diseases. I have also been asked why certain trees don't produce fruit. Now is your time to come and ask your questions. Conway will be speaking at 11:30am on February 20 at the Harris Barn in Ladner. All of our speakers are located upstairs at the barn.

Here is a bio about Conway Lum.

Conway Lum is currently working for GardenWorks@Mandeville (originally Mandeville Garden Centre located at corner of Nelson St. and Marine Drive, Burnaby) since 1988. He started out in the nursery but is now in garden supplies/information desk conducting most of the in-house seminars/workshops.
Conway has a long list of achievements. He was recipient of the “Garden Communicator of the Year Award” by BC Landscape and Nursery Association (BCLNA) for 2012 and is a contributor to the “Ask-the-Pro” column in BC Living  (Garden Wise) Magazine. He even finds time to be an evening instructor for New Westminster Continuing Education for gardening classes.
He is past recipient of the “Garden Communicator Award” by BC Landscape and Nursery Association (BCLNA) for 2006 and  the “Environmental Star Award” by the City of Burnaby for European Chafer public education. Conway Lum previously served on the European Chafer advisory committee. So if you have questions about this relatively new pest, here's your chance. 
Conway is currently serving on the provincial certification committee for BCLNA and Canadian Nursery and Landscape Association. He is one of the first three candidates to receive the “Certified Horticultural Technician for retail” in Canada (CNLA) and recently obtained “Landscape Industry Certified” technician for ornamental and turf maintenance.
Come enjoy our speakers and  browse the vendor tables at Ladner Seedy Saturday. We are excited to announce a children's activity at Ladner Seedy Saturday. You and your child will be able to participate in a unique garden craft. We will have more on that later as we get closer to the event.
If you are interested in being a vendor we have a few tables left. Its a fun day for the whole family and a great way to kickoff the gardening season.
