Greens Workshop & Poinsettia Pick-up
December 8, 2018
Annual Meeting and Holiday Brunch (Members Only)
Gardeners are more aware than most modern people of the slowly changing seasons-particularly the temperature, precipitation and angle of the sun. Each phase of the climate, and each garden's micro-climate, calls us to help the natural processes along in a different way. Join us to review the latest horticultural science and share our own observations about what works best when. It will be fun!here to add text.
Container gardening can require specialized knowledge particularly in our very unpredictable and brief New England growing season, however with a little practice, it can be quite easy and can actually become second-nature to even the most inexperienced. Once you understand the basics, you can have beautiful sun, shade and even vegetable gardens blooming in a variety of diverse pots placed throughout your gardens, patios and other outdoor living spaces. This workshop will illustrate the materials, styles of containers, planting mediums, fertilizer & water requirements and flower combinations available to you for creating and maintaining beautiful container gardens.
Members Lorraine Dacko and Ginny Urdi will show us how to create delicious fruit preserves using locally grown produce at our June meeting. This "jamming session" will encourage members and guests to come right into the kitchen to both observe and assist in the process; from washing and hulling the strawberries to pouring the hot and fragrant fruit in its semi-liquid form into prepared jam jars, this promises to be a great treat for the senses. And everyone gets a sample! Don't forget your apron!
(Please note: to cover material costs there will be a nominal fee charged for this activity)
Freelance photographer and journalist David Nelson of West Lebanon, NH will present a Powerpoint program centering on flowers, wildflowers and gardens, representing approximately five years of dedicated work featuring a collection of over 300 photographs. He tells us it also represents a labor of love.
November 12th Members' Meeting
Creating Holiday Decorations
Wreaths, Swags & Trees
Two of our own members, Margaret Leary and Catherine Wittliff, will present ideas on how to use natural materials to decorate holiday wreaths. Going into our gardens or woods can provide wonderful design elements to enhance your holiday decorating. We will explore using seed pods, birch bark, tree branches, and other common items you can find in the grocery store to make your holiday decorating affordable and "eye catching". There will be a "hands on" demonstration on how to make bows for your wreaths as well. Come join the fun and get some easy and new ideas for your holiday decor!
