What do Des Kennedy and the Campbell River Garden Club have in common?  Heart & Soil!

On Wednesday, May 14, the Campbell River Garden Club, together with Harbour Publishing will present an evening with venerated Canadian author, Des Kennedy, who will inspire you with his unmistakable gardening humour from his latest book:  Heart & Soil: The Revolutionary Good of Gardens.

Gardeners of all levels and varieties can appreciate Des Kennedy’s perspective as he shares his experiences tending his spectacular garden for over 40 years. His stories are heartwarming, inspiring and often comical as he reflects on topics from conquering clay to loving ladybugs to creating an asparagus bed for the ages.

Heart & Soil is at the Timberline High School Theatre, North Island College campus starting at 7 p.m. Admission is $5 for non-members and free for Campbell River Garden Club members. Kennedy will be available to personalize copies of his book in advance and following his presentation.

Campbell River Garden Club is a forum for the gathering and sharing of local and expert gardening knowledge and materials during regular meetings, visits to gardens and nurseries, special projects and associated social events.  Learn more about the garden club at their web page:  www.campbellrivergardenclub.com or find them on Facebook.
