Invitation to conservation society’s first gathering

You are invited to attend the end of the Garden City Lands Coalition Society if you support it and wish to help advance its goal*and wish to participate in its promising rebirth. The society consists of citizens who aim to help steward Richmond’s legacy lands for agricultural, ecological and open-land park uses for community wellness. Since they are a positive-acting group of people, it is always a happy and productive evening.

We’re celebrating our good fortune and looking forward to new & enhanced roles. We think it will be the last annual gathering of the Coalition because the board of directors is asking the membership to update the society’s name, replacing Lands Coalition with Conservation.

Update, June 18: The membership approved the new name. The next step is to obtain approval from the Registrar of Companies.

Venue: Red Barn, Terra Nova Rural Park, 2631 Westminster Hwy, Richmond.

Price: Free with membership—open to all who support our goal, constitution & bylaws and pay the $10 annual fee. (Donation optional.)

Event features, Monday, June 18, 2012:

  • Registration, 6­–7 p.m., but by 6:45 if possible.
  • Good healthy appetizing snack food (“light dinner”) to complement what you may eat before & after + good sociable company, 6­–7 p.m.
  • Optional agri-tour with Ian Lai, featuring edible weeds and the legacy around us, 6:15 p.m. Highly recommended.

The constitution and bylaws are available online in their existing version, along with the proposed new provisions of the constitution, in the post below this one. If you support them and wish to work toward the society’s stewardship goal, you are welcome to take  out membership ($10 annual fee) on the membership page of the Garden City Lands Coalition website.
