We have a wonderful year of WGG events planned for 2017-18.  We start with two fabulous garden tours, then have programs on “Where to Begin Planning Your Landscape” and “Gardening in Wellesley” and also “Not your Grandmother’s Hostas”!  Two workshops are planned: the annual December Workshop and an Herb Garden Planter in May.  Social events will include the Yankee Swap in January and a Wine & Cheese and Travel Photo sharing night in February.  However, the highlight of the year is going to be our 50th Anniversary Luncheon at Wellesley Country Club in April.  We hope to have many past and present WGG members at this celebratory event. 

The 2017-18 Yearbook is attached and it contains all of the dates and information for our programs this year (scroll down to find the “Programs” section) as well as member contact information.  Printed yearbooks will be available for pickup at the Sept. 13th garden tour.  Thank you to Vivian Baguer Holland for coordinating the new yearbook. 

Looking forward to a fun year of gardening and learning!
