ENGC Education Series Program

"Waking Up the Garden"
Sunday, February 23, 2020

ENGC hosted a sell-out crowd at our February 23rd education program. They loved the catalogs, garden gloves and seed pack giveaways and took lots of notes. Thanks to Jane and Mary Ellen for coordinating the details that assured a very informative and successful meeting.

The audience of 45 or more appeared eager to get their hands in the dirt. ENGC members Nathalie and Donna, joined by 2 members of the Western Reserve Herb Society, Kate Williams and Lynn Griffin, showed or told them how to do it.  Many handouts and a power point made potential gardening adventures come alive.

Guests enjoyed delicious sweets made by Joan, Pat, Marlene and Mary Ellen, along with coffee. There were  also many choices of fine catalogs to take plus a new pair of garden gloves and seed packet for each guest. A beautiful, beautiful sunny day gave us all a taste of Spring. What a treat!

Jane welcomed guests and recommended a favorite gardening book that was very helpful to her as a novice gardener
Kate and Lynn discussed what can be discovered in the various sections of the herb garden at Cleveland Botanical Garden that is managed by the Western Reserve Herb Society
Donna informed attendees about new perennials and annuals that will be in garden centers and nurseries in 2020
Nathalie told the audience what steps to take to prepare their gardens for spring planting
