Description

Meet the Insects in Your Garden

Speaker: Malcolm Geast

In his presentation he will talk about some of his personal encounters with grasshoppers, flies, butterflies, and an assortment of beetles and other insects, and will draw from over 8,000 photos that he has taken in his garden and around southern Ontario.

Dive into the world that lives in your back garden and all the insects that make it thrive. Don't worry there won't be any reals ones attending the meeting! Just photographs.

A Past-President of the East York Garden Club, Malcolm currently serves as the Treasurer for the Leaside Garden Society and is an Assistant District Director of District 5 of the Ontario Horticultural Association. He is also the OHA’s historian, the editor of the OHA Trillium newsletter, and is the photographer for the City of Toronto Front Garden Awards.

Now retired, Malcolm spent 34 years with Environment Canada, working at several weather offices in southern Ontario and in Downsview as a climatologist and software developer. He and his wife lived and gardened in the Toronto suburb of East York for 30 years, and since 1998 have been members of the East York Garden Club and several other horticultural societies in the Toronto area. Malcolm takes the viewpoint that insects are not to be feared or disliked, but should be enjoyed as much as the plants in the garden.
