July 30th was a great day for a picnic. Last Thursday, Plant Ag's Social Committee hosted the annual summer event at the Guelph Turfgrass Institute, opting this year to forgo the barbecue for deluxe deli sandwiches - a big hit amongst the hungry crowd! A selection of potluck salads and desserts were also devoured by hungry picnic-ers.
Dr. Andy Gordon and Plant Agriculture technician, Rodger Tschanz provided informative tours of the areas they specialize in. Gordon lead one group on a tour of the bio energy and agro forestry lands, while Rodger Tschanz took a group on a guided tour of the Trial Gardens.

Kids and adults alike were all able to enjoy the fabulous day of food, socializing and games on the stunning grounds of the GTI.
A big THANK YOU to Clarence Swanton and to the rest of the social committee for your enthusiastic help in organizing such great event.
