We all yearn for those meetings we love so much. Great goodies brought in fresh form members, bagels, Ed's coffee and the social time just talking to members. Of course we miss the presentations, often by our very own members. It will be awhile before we can enjoy those wonderful meetings but in the mean time Bob and some members have come up with a schedule that is as close to what we yearn. All meetings will be by Zoom. Zoom meeting invitation information will be emailed to members.
The upcoming schedule:
February Zoom meeting is 2-17-21. Speakers are, Helen Gao talking about growing mushrooms from a kit and Nancy Lynch with part 2 of Milkweed to Monarchs.
March Zoom meeting is 3-17-21. Speakers are, Progress report from Helen Gao, Lucille speaking about starting seeds in milk jugs, Kathy VanDyke speaking about starting seeds indoors and germination tips.
April meeting is 4-21-21. Speakers are Helen, Lucille, Kathy with project progress reports.
May meeting is 5-19-21. Don’t have speakers lined up. Weather permitting maybe we can have an outside garden tour (arboretum?).
June meeting is 6-16-21. No plans yet. Outside somewhere?
