Not-so-Shabby Chic

At 10 a.m. on May 8, our Club is going to hold our annual fund-raiser before our meeting. Advice is to get there early; things are priced to sell and may go very fast.

Among the stars are some small designs ready to take home for Mother’s Day, and home-made cards of which a portion of the sale will go to the Club.

Please come early, and enjoy some casual conversation and excitement over our speakers, who will talk to us about using native plants in our landscapes. Even the smallest and simplest of gardens can give back to nature without much effort. Talk about maintenance free gardening!

We look forward to seeing new and “seasoned” members tomorrow!

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.
