Preparing for Spring!
A beautiful February day found some members reveling in the smell and feel of soil as they planted 36 hanging baskets for the streets of Baldwin.
Using up some leftover supplies, 17 pansy pots were planted. These will be available for purchase during the tree sale distribution on April 25th.

Tree orders need to be picked up on Sunday, April 25th at Paisley Cow in Baldwin from 11 to 3.

BBBGC Receives NGC Plant America Grant
The Botany Belles and Beaus received a $1,000 to plant trees at Viking Middle School from a NGC Community Plant America grant. Sixth graders under the direction of Jason Glampe, media specialist, researched and recommended trees to be planted to garden club members. Due to Covid complications, 10 trees were planted by families and garden club members in August. The students learned the proper procedure for planting trees and are excited to see the trees grow. Trees were planted along the sidewalk leading up to the building, at the entrance to the parking lot, and by the ball fields. Six additional trees were planted in April by garden club members since they were bareroot. Money from National Garden Club, Inc. was supplemented by the Botany Belles and Beaus.
