Is it time to prune?
Prune your trees to control size, remove diseased or broken branches and increase overall vigor. Not all trees like to be pruned in the winter. Avoid winter pruning of apricots, pluots, cherries and espaliered trees.

The New Westminster Community Gardening Society invites current members and interested residents/groups to attend its Annual General Meeting, to be held from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm on Wednesday, February 25th in the Food Hall at River Market.
One of the topics of discussion will be the new community garden that will be opening in the new St. Mary’s Park (near Ecole Qayqayt Elementary at Agnes & St. Mary’s St.) in late spring. The City of New Westminster is funding & building the park & garden site, and NWCGS will manage membership and the garden program. We anticipate that there will be great deal of interest in obtaining a plot at the site, and members will be wait-listed according to the date of membership with the Society. Annual membership dues ($25/year), and plot fees for members who already have a plot, are due each year at the AGM, so please bring a cheque or cash to the meeting. If you would like to become a new member, please visit our Membership Page for details & forms. If you are unable to attend the AGM, please mail in your payment (cheques only, please; do not mail cash) before February 25th to:
