First Meeting of the Year!

The first meeting in 2013 of the My Monet Garden Club will be held on Monday, May 13, 2012 at the Library. During this meeting we will plan future Master Gardener programs and weekend garden tours.

There has been a change in how often the club gets together. The Garden Club now meets the second Monday from May to October at 7:00PM. Weekend Day Trips may take the place of a Monday evening meeting. Please check the Library’s website for meeting/program dates or Day Trip locations.

The change in seasons seems to be taking its time but I think 2013 will be an amazing growing season. I look forward to hearing all your plans for your gardens this year!

See you in May!

Participants in the program can place their hives on our 333 acre organic farm in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, creating a beekeeping community network to support the honeybee stewards even after completion of the course.
