White paper cover with printed green lettering and a green toned photograph of Waterloo Avenue on the front. The photo is courtesy of Don Hamilton and shows the double row of sugar maple trees that were planted on Waterloo Avenue (what was the stage-coach route) in the early 1860s, shortly after the founding of the Guelph Horticultural Society. This issue commemorates the 130th anniversary of the founding of the Guelph Horticultural Society. In addition to articles on horticulture, there is an article "Beginnings" by H.E. Markle.

Other contents include: list of officers and directors, the 1982 program for the G.H.S., index of events in 1982, bus tours, honour awards, information about upcoming competitions and exhibitions; junior competitions and meetings.
