Gardening Group

Deb Cubberley’s phlox as ground cover

If your finger nails are dirty on a regular basis or you bought a pick axe to break up your soil, you will find answers and encouragement from this group. The Gardening Group meets on 4th Thursdays, 10 am – noon, some months of the year to tour gardens or hear a presentation, and share knowledge and ideas with fellow gardeners. The Gardening Group, chaired by Ellie Anderson, has pulled together some photos to stage a virtual tour of their handiwork. Check out the lovely flora this group cultivates in their landscapes.

We usually have programs at local nurseries or with Master Gardeners. A year-end, all-day field trip in April or May has usually been enjoyable for all. This year we had to rely on a virtual mode of sharing.
