Brown studied at Fanshawe College for two years and then transferred to a degree program at Olds, Alberta (population 2,000) where he completed his studies in production horticulture. He was working in London at greenhouses and garden centres until his mother notified him about the opening in Kincardine.

Now, the 22-year-old is getting down to the dirty work, making sure the municipal flower beds are ready for the volunteers to plant in Kincardine on May 30 and in Tiverton on June 6.

The hanging baskets and half-barrels of flowering plants are growing at IC Greenhouses, south of Ripley, and will be placed in downtown Kincardine and Tiverton a week after the planting.

Brown's department is also concentrating on the beautification of the Village of Tiverton for the reunion at the end of July.
