October 2021 Monthly Meeting

Our own, Jackie Daniell shared her experiences regarding Vegetable Gardening at the S.E. Gwinnett Co-op Garden.  After a 40+ years in banking, Jackie ditched the suit, pearls and briefcase for jeans, tee-shirt, and garden tools. She began volunteering at the S.E. Gwinnett Co-op Garden and completed the MGEV program in the class of 2017.  We learned how this special vegetable garden is managed and operates during the year.  Her presentation outlined the process of planning, soil, plants and seed quality, research and resources used, timing, preparation of beds and planting, importance of maintenance and sanitation, plant problems and Co-op solutions to Integrated Pest Management (IPM), harvesting, and crop change-over.
