June 2021 Monthly Meeting

Our June 21st Zoom meeting welcomes Dr. Juliana Razryadov. Entitled Big Splash Small Space: Native Plants for Container Gardens, Juliana will give us a review of container gardening that brings nature to our doorstep.  She will review native plants available that form beautiful compositions in limited spaces.  We’ll learn about pots, overwintering, media composition, and species of native plants that suit them..  Juliana is presently the Botanical Collections Manager at the Botanic Gardens of Wellesley College and was previously the Curator of Horticulture at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

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.
