Every gardener knows about transplanting.  Moving from one place to another.  During this time of uncertainty we are moving our operations from the meeting hall to our website.  You can still look forward to flower designs, information on horticulture, birds, butterflies, notifications on enviromental projects and civic improvement.  Our members will be sharing their pet projects through photos and pearls of wisdom.

The Presidents Comments for July

A Message from our President

    Kate Coville

 

 

Dear Gardening Friends,
How blessed we were on Saturday, June 13th, to have blue skies, pleasant temperatures
and a GREAT turnout for our rescheduled Plant Sale. I want to
thank you all for your hard work digging up and caring for your plants, making
crafts, bringing in flea market items, helping with signage, advertising, set
up, sales and cleanup. For those of you who were unable to attend – we understand,
and know you were there in spirit and were cheering us on from
afar! Even without the sale of the hanging baskets and annuals, we made it!

Kudos to everyone for getting down to earth and diggin’ it!
All of our summer community gardening projects are underway and looking
lovely. Thanks for the many hands helping with these projects. We are looking
for volunteers for David Councill Park, Edith’s Garden and the Passavant planters, so if you have some extra
time to lend a hand, please consider doing so. We are currently investigating how we can be of help in our
community gardens by growing fruits/vegetables for the local community food banks. Be on the lookout for
upcoming information on how you can help.
The Picnic and July meeting are sneaking up on us NEXT WEEK, June 1st in Eileen Miller’s backyard. The
hospitality committee will be providing individual canned/bottled drinks, and desserts will be provided by club
members. We ask that you bring your own chair and lunch. If you have not already sent a RSVP to me, please
reply by Sunday, June 28th, so we know how many to expect. Also, this is another big fundraiser of ours, the
annual plant/garden related item auction! Come prepared with your items for auction, and your checkbooks/
dollars ready. It is a fun time, while raising much needed money for our club. While we did raise $2,500 from
the plant sale, we originally budgeted on raising, $3,300, so we need everyone’s help with the auction!. We will
be ZOOMING the meeting and Auction again, so let us know if you will be participating that way.
Stay safe and healthy ladies - and enjoy your time in the garden.

See you Wednesday!

 

Down to Earth and Diggin’ It,

Kate Colville
