On Thursday, July 24, 2014, in partnership with Home Hardware, the Town of Qualicum Beach will welcome celebrity gardener, Mark Cullen, for An Evening of Gardening Talk.
“We are very honoured to have Mr. Cullen share his knowledge with our garden-loving community,” said Toni Botehlo, Qualicum Beach arborist and parks department foreman in a news release.
As part of winning at last fall’s National Communities in Bloom award ceremony, Cullen agreed to attend a community event of the town’s choice.
“With so many gardening enthusiasts and clubs in our community, it was felt that an opportunity for him to share his expertise with the public, would be very welcomed,” said Botelho, who is organizing the event.
It will start at 7 p.m. at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre, at 747 Jones Street.
The $5 tickets are now on sale at town hall and the civic centre.
The funds will go towards supporting a future Communities in Bloom initiative or project.
