May Meeting – Photo Contest Gallery

Our May 18th monthly meeting will display member entries to this year’s photo contest which promises to be a wonderful display from our gardeners. We welcome back Eric Bowles, the judge for our contest.  Submissions are due by 30 March 2020 and guidelines have been posted in our member section of the website.  In addition to this years contest, we’ve been invited to display some of the amazing photos submitted to the contests over the years! This showing will be at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center and will run from mid-June through August 15th.  Join us at Bethesda Senior Center at 7pm for the photos, or bring a dish to share and join our potluck dinner at 6:30pm.

February 2020 Meeting

We had a great lunch crowd of gardeners to hear Barbara Dorfman educate us on how to “Feel Empowered to Prune“.  Barbara is a Master Gardener and a landscape consultant and spoke well to this topic.  With plenty of analogies, ideas, and pictures, Barbara explained how to cut more confidently.  She brought tools that make the job easy, explaining how shrubs and trees will respond to various cuts and types of pruners.  There were plenty of tips on how to renew overgrown or butchered shrubs.
