With great regret, your Executive has decided to cancel the March, April, May & June general meetings in the belief that we all must do our part to slow the progress of this virus. We have also cancelled the Spring & Summer Garden Show & the Russell Nurseries trip. We continue to watch developments on the Island to decide the fate of the August meeting and Fall Show.
We hope that everyone will do their part by limiting social contact and observing all instructions from our public health authorities.
The best news is that being out in the garden is safe! 🙂
Wishing you all good health and hoping to see you soon,
President, View Royal Garden Club
