Upcoming Events:

CGMGA’s August 15, 2016 program will feature Dario J. Chavez’s presentation on  Budding and Grafting.  Dario is an Assistant Professor in Horticulture at the UGA.   His main area of interest is peach research and extension with focus on orchard management, tree longevity, irrigation practices, root interaction with tree health, production, plant breeding and genetics. His objective is to study the plant production based on the plant’s genetic potential, orchard management practices, growing environment, and their interactions.  Our meeting is held at the Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044 at 7PM.

Our September meeting will not feature a speaker.  This meeting is GCMGA’s annual Thank You picnic for our members who volunteer throughout Gwinnett County.

As our last speaker for the year, we are delighted to have Felder Rushing join us for the October 17, 2016 meeting!  Felder Rushing is a 10th-generation American gardener whose pioneer ancestors settled across the Southeast, bringing many plants with them. Rushing’s overstuffed, quirky cottage garden has been featured in many TV programs and magazines (including a cover of Southern Living), and includes a huge variety of weather-hardy plants along with a collection of folk art.  He is credited with 15 gardening books (including several national award winners) and the former Extension Service urban horticulture specialist has written thousands of gardening columns in syndicated newspapers, and has had hundreds of articles and photographs published in regional and national garden magazines.  Please join us at the Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044.  The meeting will begin at 7 PM.
