Dear Garden Club Friends,
Welcome back! First, I hope all of you and all of your loved ones are healthy. Second, I hope you all are enjoying your gardens and able to be outside. This year will look a lot different for the Weston Garden Club. All our scheduled programming this fall will be virtual, on Zoom. Lisa Greenberg, our Program Chair, had a very busy summer making sure our speakers and members are both well equipped to present and participate in our Zoom meetings. I am hoping you all can join in our first meeting this Thursday, September 17 at 9:30 AM. We can socialize for a few minutes before we have a brief business meeting then Lisa will present our speaker. Our trial run this August went smoothly with our VP Molly Varnau presenting her talk on the restoration of the Forbes Land. We hope September will be as smooth.
Our committees will continue to be active over Zoom and we will have design workshops and horticulture workshops. Our competitions for now are exhibitions only on Zoom with no judging. We hope you will choose to participate as our committee chairs are working hard to keep us all involved and creative.
Our Board has gone above and beyond this year learning new ways to present ideas and keep us all involved and engaged. We will have some small in person activities held outdoors following physical distance and safety guidelines. If you are comfortable, I hope you will participate.
I would like to remind you all to participate in the GCFM Native Plant Challenge. If you planted any natives this year, please let me know! I am keeping a spreadsheet of all natives that our club plants to send to the GCFM challenge. It can be one plant or a whole garden. Just let me know what you planted and if it is in a private garden or a public space such as our Native Plant Garden. That is all for now. I will “see” you on Zoom!
Be well Yours in Dirt,
