Plant Considerations for the Residential Landscape
Spring is just around the corner. Time to give your garden landscape some serious thought. Our speaker will be Edgewater-based landscape designer, Kim Kaulas. She will cover horticultural aesthetic, and maintenance issues as they relate to plant choices for residential landscapes. Some inappropriate plant and design practices will also be covered in this slide show. Kim has 25 years of experience with her design firm which specializes in urban residential landscapes.
Last year the members of NGS had a chance to purchase tools from Growtech Inc. The price list and catalogues for 2019 will be available before the meeting. Please bring your check book if you are interested in purchasing tools.
There wll be a $5.00 fee for non-NGS members. Refreshments will be served.
Our Community Outreach Program for 2018 granted scholarships to 4 children to attend Warren Park Day camp. See Community Service section for photos and more information.
Green Room Cleanup
In early October, six NGS members led by Eva Mannaberg repotted and divided plants as well as doing general cleanup of the Green Room. Our thanks go to Eva Mannaberg, Nancy Wieting, Alice Dunlap-Kraft, Mary Oellrich, Ginny Davis and Chris Harvey for their help. See Community Service page for photos.
NGS Volunteers Honored
The NGS members who gave of their time in 2017 were honored at a dinner in January. Without their help we would not be able to care for our gardens in the parks, offer educational programs or host fund-raisers. Their work is greatly appreciated. Eva Mannaberg received a house plant to honor her service as NGS Board Chairman.
is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.
