October 2018 Field Trip

We had a great time on our field trip to Fern Ridge Farms in Cedar Bluff, Alabama on October 3rd.  Although getting there was a challenge with traffic and road construction, it was worth the trip.  Eleanor and Patsy were informative and gracious and we all went home with additional knowledge on growing and caring for the wide variety of ferns.  Enjoy the pictures Becky Panetta took that day.

2018 Annual Plant Sale

Our annual plant sale on Saturday, April 28, 2018 was a great event and we thank you for coming! Held at the Lilburn Library/City Hall Parking Lot at 4817 Church Rd NW, in Lilburn, this site was perfect to feature our pass-along plants grown in our own gardens.  We had: Trees, Shrubs, Perennials, Annuals, Vegetables & Herbs, Natives and Pollinator Plants for Sustainable Gardens and some wonderful yard art!  Enjoy the pictures of our sale day and some previous pictures of yard art workshops.

Vines Garden Butterfly Walk

In October, GCMGA members and Master Gardeners Shirley Bohm and Jeff Hicks led an educational walk and talk for the public at Vines new butterfly garden.  Visitors learned about the life cycle of the butterfly, various host and nectar plants they like, and how to create your own butterfly garden.  The masters gardeners broke ground for the project in January and it is wonderful to see the established plants along with caterpillar larvae and various butterflies!
