       Emerald Necklace Garden Club (ENGC) presents it's first education series program on Sunday, October 6, 2019 titled “Putting the Garden to Bed.”  The program is free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended. Call Jane at 440-526-4213 to register.
        Three experts will share their knowledge, followed by questions and answers on any gardening subject. The speakers are Nathalie Petri, an avid Brecksville gardener with extensive knowledge of perennials, shrubs and flowers. Her topic will be “Breaking Down the Garden.” Patricia Owen Keltner holds a Master of Science degree and is a Registered Horticultural Therapist. She is a former employee of the Cleveland Botanical Garden and will speak on “Seasonal Flowering Bulbs.”  “Tree Planting and Mulching” will be discussed by Alan Klonowski, Consulting Arborist, International Society of Arboriculture, and a former president and director of the organization.  His areas of expertise include trees, shrubs and soils.

        There will be handouts on each subject, as well as a variety of free gardening literature and a surprise gift for attendees. The timing of this program is ideal for gardening enthusiasts. Learn more about the fall chores that ensure your gardens will be ready for spring. 


Glow Tree -2019

        The overall theme for Cleveland Botnaical Garden's Glow Tree Holiday Event  in 2019 is "Tiny Treasures."  ENGC's tree will be titled "Is Your Garden Dragon," with the complimentary theme of dragon flies, water lilies and water droplets. 
        Volunteers are in the process of  creating ornament designs for presentation at the next Glow meeting on September 5th. The meeting will be at Jane's home in Brecksville at 10 AM. Our club's trees are always spectacular and this year's will be no exception.

        Please come on September 5th and bring your designs, ornament samples and ideas to join this fun annual project.

Fall Fest  is Sunday, September 29

Fall Fest is Sunday, September 30th, in the Meadows Pavillion area of Brecksville Metroparks. 

Please plan to help kids make "Posies in Pots" for a couple of hours that day at the ENGC flower arranging table. And start thinking about late-blooming flowers, grass fronds, dried materials and other foliage that can be used in the arrangements that you can donate from your gardens. 

This is another fun club project that also creates awareness of our club and introduces kids to one aspect of "gardening."
