Please come to our final meeting for 2014 Tuesday September 30th at 6:30 at the Concord Green Community Room.  We are having a pot-luck to start off the meeting, followed by election of our new board.  If not having to cook dinner for one evening, and a nice lasagna, salad and fresh chocolate chip cookies sounds good to you, come join us to celebrate a wonderful season of gardening. 
If you haven't RSVP'd yet, please let Barbara Morse know if you can come and what you would like to bring. 

The gardens are beautiful!

Tonight's Garden Walk Through Cancelled - Come on Sat.!

posted May 22, 2014, 1:03 PM by Kitty Smith   [ updated May 22, 2014, 1:03 PM by Janice Ward ]

Hi all -

Due to the periodic downpours, I am cancelling/postponing tonight's garden walk - through.  We will still meet Saturday morning at 10 a.m. (at Fowler) for the same purpose, and, if needed, we will find another date for those who cannot make Saturday  but would still like to review maintenance procedures for each of the 5 gardens we care for.

Saturday's weather looks great!
Barbara
