We are pleased to have Scott McMahan, who is the Manager of International Plant Exploration at Atlanta Botanical Gardens, speak at our first program of 2020 on January 20th.  Scott will talk about “Plant Exploration with a Purpose” and share his experiences on his work in India, Vietnam and China as well as his new evaluation nursery up in Gainesville.  This program will start at noon and you’re invited to bring a sandwich and join us for fellowship at 11:30AM at Bethesda Senior Center.

Join us for a lunch meeting to hear Barbara Dorfman educate us to “Feel Empowered to Prune“.  Barbara is a Master Gardener and a landscape consultant and speaks well to this topic.  Barbara will help gardeners cut more confidently and suggest tools that make the job easy, explaining how shrubs and trees will respond to various cuts, and even offer tips on how to renew overgrown or butchered shrubs.  We’ll meet at 11:30 for lunch if you’d like to bring a sandwich; our program will start at noon at Bethesda Senior Center, Lawrenceville.
