You will also be asked to share information about your garden experiences over this last summer. What did you learn? What would you do different? Bring photos to pass around.
This will be fun. Bring a friend. At our October meeting you will be asked to share what you have learned about gardening this summer. Bring and share photos of your garden. You may also submit gardening questions to our members. The questions will be read and solutions discussed.
When you are cleaning up your garden this fall remember to pot up something to bring for our fall plant exchange. Remember to collect seeds for our seed exchange. Please label your plants and seeds. Do not forget to put your name on the labels. Being able to walk thru your garden and remembering who gave you a particular plant is a good thing. Having a connection to members through the plants in our gardens helps to build fellowship among our members. Why is this important? The more connections we have to one another the more comfortable we will be working together on our service projects.
