Growing Your Chapter
Healthy, vibrant, and colorful gardens and local AGO chapters thrive on focused care and attention. In 2009 the Gardener at Victoria, BC's Butchart Gardens had everything in tip-top shape for many of our 2009 Regional Convention attendees when we visited as part of the Regional Convention with its theme of "How Sweet the Sound." As much as we wanted the Butchart Gardener to appear in Boise for this convention, the gardens couldn't be left alone even for a day. However, our Regional Councillor and past Seattle Chapter Dean, Dean Jamieson will do his best to share a few tips for dynamic chapter-level organization and maybe throw in a gardening tip or two of his own.
