Our Amazing September Speaker

Our next speaker in our Speaker Series will be Victoria(Vikki)Whitney. She is the General Manager of Griffin`s Greenhouses which oddly enough is her family business. This year, Griffin`s is celebrating its 38th year of business,WOW! Victoria has been actively involved as Manager since 2002. She grew up in the business and acquired most of her horticultural expertise and training during that journey.

Victoria was formally trained as a high school teacher and that experience has made her very comfortable in giving numerous seminars and workshops offered by Griffin`s Greenhouses. You can see the list of topics by visiting their website

Throughout her career she has spoken at numerous events throughout Ontario and has twice in the past been one of the speakers at the prestigious Canadian Greenhouse Conference.

When not digging in the rich earth at the greenhouse, Victoria is busy at home in her own gardens and orchestrating the life of a wife to Darryl and a mom to two budding gardeners Olivia(13) and Ben(10).

Victoria will be speaking to us on Thursday,September 18th 2014 at 7pm at the Presbyterian Church Hall which is located at the corner of Joseph and Queen Streets. Her topic is very appropriate for this time of year: Fall Planters. We know you will enjoy Victoria as she shares her expertise with us. Looking forward to seeing you on the 18th.
