MNGI will be participating in the Madison Expo on March 12 at Mars Hill University 11-4.
The schedule has been set for power hours and work days/meetings.
Our next power hour will be Monday, March 14th at 5-6 p.m. We'll meet in the library conference room to talk about the Butterfly garden gate construction.
Please join us.
POWER HOURS will be the second Monday of the month from 5-6 pm. The next one is Monday, June 13th from 5-6 p.m. We'll be weeding the Forest Farm garden and could use all hands available for one short hour!
2016 work days will be the third Saturday of the month: June 18th's focus will be the install of the Woodland Shade pathway. We'll start at 8:30 with a meeting to follow.
Contact Ed McNally at 828-333-3883 with questions.
2016 Plans will start with the installation of the Medicinal Herb garden on Saturday, May 7th.
We will also start installing the Woodland garden! There are tons of plants that can bring color to the shady areas of your property. Watch how it's done as the shade garden develops into a wonderful secret place to visit!
Plans for the BIRD garden also continue. This garden is located on the back side of the library. Access the area by going through the interior doors on either side of the large windows, or just sit inside and watch as the landscape changes and the birds visit.
We are looking forward to some additions to the NATIVE SHRUB garden that will be donated by the Southern Highlands Reserve.
Below are some of the native grasses we used in the circle garden.... Check them out!
You'll notice some of the same plants that were used in the entry gardens will be used in the circle garden. Some basic principles of design are repetition and continuity. So you'll find as we design the library grounds that we repeat plants and color to help pull all the gardens together.
Have design questions, call Ed 828-333-3883 or Susan 828-656-2729.
We are looking for a new champion for the butterfly garden. This involves keeping an eye on the garden, organizing a group to weed or water or whatever needs doing. Interested?? Call Bobbi at 828-689-5100.
Below are some of the native plants we used in the entry garden. Check them out and see if they might fit into your landscape as well!
