Ageing Gardens, Ageing Gardeners
Presented by Ann McEntee
Master of Landscape Architecture, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, Advanced Master Gardener
The Nashua Garden Club is looking forward to its March program "Ageing Gardens, Ageing Gardeners" presented by Ann McEntee, Advanced Master Gardener and garden design consultant. This event will be held via a Zoom conference open to garden club members.
This session will appeal to all of us who love our gardens but not the never-ending hours of maintenance that they demand or those who have come to the painful realization that we and our gardens have aged and changed over time. This presentation is sure to relieve some of these concerns and challenges. It will provide strategies on how to garden more wisely, to prioritize tasks, manage mature plants and, most importantly, tips how aging gardeners can care for themselves.
Ann holds degrees in Literature from the University of Texas and the University of California. She earned her doctorate in Theatre Arts from the University of California. After working 12 years in higher education, she pursued her long-standing avocation of landscape design and history and earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of New Mexico. Ann also the former lead gardener at the Cathedral of the Pines and is currently a garden design consultant, frequently presents to towns and organizations on gardening and teaches landscape, gardening and architectural history courses for the Keene State College CALL (Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning) program.

The Nashua Garden Club is an independent non-denomination club that devotes itself to the diverse needs and interests of its many-faceted member gardeners. Founded in 1961, the Club's uniqueness lies in its accommodation to its members by holding meetings in the evening. The Club's mission is to encourage its members to fully involve themselves in learning about and participating in the many and varied aspects of horticulture, landscape design, floral design, and the civic beautification of our community.
Upon containment of COVID-19 and when in person meetings resume, they will be held on the first Wednesday of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm) at the First Baptist Church, 121 Manchester Street, Nashua NH.
