- Empower yourself with gardening knowledge

Gardeners shoulder diverse responsibilities, including planting, weeding, watering, fertilizing, pruning, raking, mowing, caring for flower beds, maintaining tools, soil management, pest control and crafting garden designs. So you’d better sit down and immerse yourself in an in-person workshop.

Here is an opportunity: The Regina Horticultural Association (RHS) is going to host this year’s SHA Spring Workshop on April 6 at Luther College, Regina, SK.  You will have chances to learn from Saskatchewan gardening experts. There are nine sessions in three-time slots; you need to pick your first and second choice of session and then go to the Workshop Registration Form to complete the form. 

The morning begins in the Luther College auditorium with a welcome to attendees and Spring is Coming, session with Jackie Bantle. To learn more about the expert presenters, go to Speaker Bios .
