We hope you weathered the storm and everyone is safe. As temperatures warm many of your plants will start to recover while others may not. Losses are inevitable but you’ll be surprised at how resilient plants are, especially natives.
Business first: we are nearing the end of our club year and getting in gear for the next one. Bring your check book or cash to renew your membership $50 for 2021-22. We have a waiting list for new members and will be opening up enrollment in May. So as current members, please get your renewal in now!
Plant sale on March 20th: if you are not donating 10 plants for our annual fundraiser, we kindly ask that you contribute $20 to the treasury (check or cash). Let us know if you need containers, we have plenty! We also need volunteers and Sharon will pass around the sign-up sheet to work a shift. Plant sale is at Grogan’s Mill Farmers Market from 9 am to 1 pm. Now is a good time to invite your family, friends and neighbors and let them know we will have a selection of plants from our gardens, herbs, and unique craft items. Please get the word out on your social media and in your social circle.
