Did you know that Terrarium Gardening has been popular for nearly 200 years? Join us Monday, January 19th, 7:00 p.m. The terrarium presentation this evening with Emily Robinson will bring us advice on selecting suitable containers and plant material, tips for how best to create and maintain a healthy eco-system in your new terrarium, and a discussion. Our meeting will be held at the Bethesda Senior Center 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044.
GCMGA invites you to Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044 on Monday, February 16th, at 7:00 PM to learn there is a native tree that will perform excellently in every corner of your property. When you plant a tree you are making a huge property investment. The right tree (or shrub), in the right place will anchor your home for 20 and perhaps 100 years. Gary Peiffer, the current DeKalb County Extension Agent with an extensive background in forestry practices and a certified arborist, will identify the good and the poor characteristics of some trees native to Georgia. He will make some recommendations and provide us with quite a few pointers on proper tree care.
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.
