July 10-  Garden Tours !

The annual July garden tour is always a popular event.  It is always a joy to see the gardens that have been created by our members.  In a way, these tours should be called “secret garden tours” because these gardens are frequently hidden from public view, and each tour is opened only to club members. After touring each garden the club will enjoy refreshments in one garden’s setting. This year  Ann Newsmith and Cheryl Wilfong have volunteered to share their gardens!  Refreshments will be served following the tour at one of the gardens.

Hostesses: Rene Brewer- Durkee, Lynn Billington

Place/ Time:  Meet at the Green Mountain Chapel at 5:30 to carpool.

May 8-  Organic Gardening/ Preparing your garden    Presenter:  Cassie Freese,  Activity: Garden Lights, Carlene McCarty

Yes, we all have prepared our gardens for the growing season.  Whether we focus on vegetable gardens or flowers gardens we are faced with the challenge of  “getting it right” .  When factoring in a  desire to be as organically-minded as possible and as kind to the environment as possible, we can benefit from new tips, guidelines, and information.  Club member Cassie Freese will share with us her insight on organic gardening.   Following Cassie’s program, club member Carlene Mc Carty will lead those who are interested in making garden lights.  Supplies will be provided.
