Hello Gardeners – Our first program of the season will be on September 12th!

We are looking for some members to make floral arrangements (you can work in pairs) inspired by a book of your choosing. This is similar to the Art in Bloom at the Museum of Fine Arts. The goal is to create a floral arrangement inspired by the cover, title or content of a book that can be displayed, discussed and raffled off for our scholarship fund. Please respond to Kathy Ryan, kabobryan@gmail.com.

The September meeting will also feature a plant swap! Bring in your perennials for swapping. Bring something? Take something!

Get your creative juices flowing and team with other members to create a Book in Bloom!

Lucia and Maureen led the discussion of “Botany of Desire” by Michael Pollan.

Saturday, July 8, 10am-4pm, rain or shine.

Salem Garden Club for details.

June 13, 7PM at the Manchester Community Center

We’ve chosen The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan for our book discussion.
Members will bring food for pot luck dinner.

Today Elaine and Dot put the icing, or mulch, on top of the Town Hall project. Wolf Hill Garden Center delivered 10 bags of dark mulch which we spread on the upper and lower beds. Stop and look at the difference a few hours of work and a $100 in plants makes.
