Greetings Garden Friends,
It’s that busy time of year again for us gardening enthusiasts. The sunshine
and warmer temperatures have been beckoning us outside to weed, divide
perennials, mulc, and spray for deer! This month we look forward to
diving into our community projects at David Councill Park, Edith’s Garden
at Northmont Library, and the Passavant Planters. Our plant sale, which is
Saturday, May 22nd, will be here before we know it. We will need all hands

attics/basements for items for our sale.

Looking forward to seeing many of you Friday, April 30th on Arbor Day at David Councill Park to

2021 is going to be a great year of gardening, working to beautify our community, strengthening club
friendships, and gaining new knowledge from our excellent monthly programs. I can’t wait to pour over
the new yearbook which will soon be hot off the presses!
Your President, Kate Colville – “Down to Earth and Diggin’ it”
