Sanders County Horticultural Society Wraps Up Inaugural Year

By Charlotte Beaudry, Master Gardener (10.16.2012)

The first year of the SCHS comes to a close with our last meeting in October, “Putting Your Yard and Garden to Bed.� The monthly meetings began in February with an enthusiastic group of gardeners looking forward to expanding their knowledge and experiences. Our agenda for 2012 included:

  • Vegetable Gardening
  • Fruit Tree Pruning
  • Small Fruits & Berries
  • Ornamental Selection & Perennials
  • Bird Walk
  • Composting
  • Plant Propagation
  • Putting Your Yard & Garden to Bed

All members completed a questionnaire checking their areas of interest and their responses generated the subjects to be explored during the year. We have many more to keep us busy for the next few years.

Our meetings will begin again in February, 2013. We certainly welcome all new members and encourage active participation in any areas of expertise. If you would like to join us, please complete a membership application which is avaible in Word and PDF formats.
