Organized: June, 2006
Meetings: 1st Tuesday @ 5:30 or 6:00 p.m.
We are an eclectic group! We have great fun at our meetings which take us in many directions and run the gamut of experiences. There are so many unique and wonderful places to visit and explore in the Rock River Valley.
We meet in the evenings and pack as much into our meetings as we can. We’ve gathered for a chili dump and challenged garden myths, visited Denny Rehn’s Farm Museum, toured beautiful private gardens of Gary Gordon and Patti Cavanaugh, had picnics and harvest potlucks. We were treated like royalty at the incomparable Trudy Temple garden and have been amazed at the variety of hostas at Hostamania in Chemung.
We always find time to meet at members’ gardens where we enjoy raffles and plant exchanges. And, usually a gastric treat! We have a wonderful time together and return home with some new piece of gardening knowledge. It’s all about sharing!
Go often to the house of a friend,
for weeds soon choke up the unused path.
Shared joy is a double joy;
shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
– Swedish Proverbs
