Our noon meeting at Bethesda Senior Center on February 15th will feature Sara Henderson‘s presentation Everything Old Is New Again: The Gardens of Oakland Cemetery. Today’s gardens call for environmentally sensible choices in order to meet modern challenges, but many of the answers are found in historic gardens and heirloom plants. Oakland’s gardens are a laboratory for durability, requiring plants that are durable and low maintenance, yet beautiful in all seasons. These tough survivors often have surprising histories that run deeper than we think. Sara is the current Director of Gardens at Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery. Come join us for her informative talk!
Our own member, Jane Burke, Master Gardener 2010 will share her thoughts on “Going Organic“. Jane will present ways in which this transition can be made without your garden being overrun be diseases, weeds and insects. She will also deal with the importance of making plants healthier through compost and compost tea, thereby improving your soil and the soil food web, which makes all the difference. Join us at Bethesda Senior Center in Lawrenceville at 7PM on March 21st.
Our Mission is to serve as stewards of the environment, voluntarily educating the public of Gwinnett County, Georgia about horticultural practices that will foster both beautiful gardens and a healthy environment.
