Calgary Horticultural Society: For many Calgary gardeners, the cold, snowy weather of the last week closed the door on the outdoor gardening season. However, it doesn't stop us from continuing our learning about how to be better gardeners. Not having as many outdoor task means we can take time to evaluate what we grew and think about what was successful and why. We can also sign up for a talk, workshop, or course. Check out their What's Happening Calendar:
