Updates are In!

If you’ve been following us on FaceBook or Google+, you know we’re busy all year ’round, but it really heats up – in September. This year is no exception. We have updated our Meetings page, and there’s just too much to mention here. You have to go there and see for yourself!

Our club is busy in Red Bank working on those beautiful flower pots, which you can’t miss as you cruise down Main Street in the center of town. We hope you enjoy and appreciate the devotion shown by members as they clip, pull, and also clean out, the planters there. Other year-round activities are in place, such as our Poricy Park herb garden project.

The beginning of the school year will resume many projects, and you can read about them here: Club Projects.

Please bookmark us or join this blog so you can keep up with all the action. There is something for everyone, and we look forward to seeing you.

Happy Summer – C U in Sept.

Now that we’re all done with our project year, Club members are back in their gardens, weather permitting, pruning and tilling and getting ready for more fun.

Our upcoming programs promise to be interesting and fun as well. When we are ready to show off our bountiful harvest, there is the September show that is open to all. We feature many locally grown fruits and vegetables as well as flowers – click on our show schedule when it’s ready to check the entry list. Good luck to all.

We also have a great design exhibit at this time. Come check out what we have created with our bountiful imaginations.

The rest of our year features many unique talks and workshops. As we develop our schedule, the meeting details will be posted on this website as well as information about our speakers.

We hope also to continue to add information about environmental concerns. These include protecting our pollinators, replanting native species in our gardens, community beautification and children’s’ programs. Many of our members are Monmouth County Master Gardeners and many are beginners. Surely there is something for everybody.

All of our members are waiting to meet you. Our meetings are free and open to the public. We are a friendly group and we hope you feel the same.
