February 2021 Monthly Meeting

Our presenter for February 15 monthly Zoom meeting was Fred Conrad who is the Senior Manager of Community Gardens for the Food Well Alliance in Atlanta.

Fred’s presentation was an overview and tour of the Community Garden movement in metropolitan Atlanta and about how many community gardens are organized, how they function and the many ways they serve neighborhoods.  It is the story of food bringing people together. 

April 2021 Monthly Meeting

On April 19th Shirley Bohm will give a talk about “Vines Garden Park – A Learning Garden“.  Vines Park near Loganville is one of the three heritage parks in Gwinnett County.  Previously a private botanical garden, it was donated to Gwinnett County by Bo and Myrna Adams in 1990.  Master Gardener volunteers have done the majority of the maintenance in the nine individual garden settings for more than 10 years.  This 90-acre park, including a lake and 30 acres of established gardens, is used by the Master Gardeners as a backdrop for many learning experiences.  Learn more about Vines and enjoy a picture tour of the grounds.

2020 Review

Our November meeting is usually a holiday celebration and a chance to visit and talk with other members. Covid-19 changed all that. February was our last in-person meeting and, as many of us are seniors, we were mandated to stay at home until June. But the pandemic didn’t stop us gardening and doing. We masked up, keep social distancing and discovered Zoom meetings.

Following tradition, our historian Freda Steward put together a wonderful presentation of our year. Enjoy!
