2018-2019 CLUB CALENDAR
September 26, 2018—Together Again
We open our meeting year on Thursday, September 26, 2018 10:30 am at St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church , 10701 Old Georgetown Road, North Bethesda. Come with stories of your garden adventures and misadventures over the past summer. If you’ve grown plants new to you that you fell in love with and that thrived in your garden plot, please share their names. And if you have a broken heart over hard work and expense that came to nothing, we can sympathize and perhaps learn not to plant that particular non-performer in our own plots. So join us on Thursday and tell all…it’ll be fun!

The plant sale, held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine, at the Montgomery Farm Women’s Cooperative Market in Bethesda, is eagerly anticipated by local gardeners and members alike. It provides a great service as a source for locally grown plants that will almost certainly flourish in our neighborhood gardens. Start thinking now about getting some plants from your yard ready for our annual fundraiser.
