Unusual Plants at Vines Park

Held on Saturday, February 6th, the quarterly Walk-and-Talk was about the many, varied unusual plants in the park.  Led by GCMGA members and Master Gardeners Lori Prosser and Janet Leutzinger, over 40 people attended the event in the cold morning.

The Vines Volunteers are a dedicated group composed of mostly GCMGA members who work at the park every Tuesday and host a quarterly Walk-and-Talk for the county.  Enjoy the pictures.
