UPCOMING EVENTS – A MESSAGE FROM THE GILDMISTRESS

Your Gardeners Gild is back in business for 2020, and we’ll be offering some great presentations this year!   
 
First up will be  Tom Borkowski (always fascinating!) on January 27th (NOTE: this was moved from the 20th due to unforeseen circumstances) at 7:30 PM in the Lower Gild Hall.  He is planning to talk about his own garden’s development — with his excellent, colorful images, which we need so much in January! — in “Grand Plans for Small Spaces.”   In February we have a much-anticipated speaker from Mt Cuba coming to us on February 17th, same time and place!  Then on 23 March, we’ll be joined by representatives of the Delaware Center for Horticulture, who will talk to us about their programs to help rehabilitate current and formerly convicted persons by teaching them landscaping and gardening skills for future employment!
 
And where would you like us to visit?  Currently, we have Chanticleer on our list, and Bartram’s Garden (both in Pennsylvania), and we can add others, even farther away.  Be creative!  And don’t forget about the possibility of a group visit to the Philadelphia Flower Show (Feb 29-Mar 8).
We are also beginning to think about ongoing GG responsibilities.  Would you be interested in leading or helping to lead our group, or arranging refreshments, programs, or offering other assistance, this year or next?  There is clearly such great talent among you, and I’d love to hear from you if you have any interest.  I really believe our Gardeners Gild will be just as strong as our members are active!
 
Finally, wow —  it’s time to start planning our gardening efforts for this year!  For your consideration, I’m attaching an article from John Scheepers (Inc), “The Quintessential Seed-Starting Guide”.

Please mark your calendars for Tom’s talk on January 20 at 7:30 PM in the Lower Gild Hall.  Looking forward to seeing you then!

 
All the best, as always,
