Summer Garden Tour and Cook Out

Please join us on Saturday, July 18th for a pot-luck cookout and herb plant swap at the home of Celeste and Ted in Leominster (see member email for address). Come socialize with your Gardeners Exchange friends while enjoying delights from the grill. Appetizers, sides, desserts & beverages will be provided by members. Also please bring along your design ideas and sage advice for Celeste and Ted as they start their third year trying to create gardens to complement their 1898 “summer home.”

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by replying to the member email for this event. 

The festivities will kick off at 12:00 noon with the Gardener’s Exchange First Annual Herb Plant Swap (see below for more info), followed by the cookout. There is plenty of parking available along the driveway and up by the house.

Herb Plant Swap

Our August meeting is an herb workshop so now is the time to expand your garden’s herb selection! The least expensive and most fun way to do this is by sharing herbs with fellow gardeners – so we are planning an herb plant swap in conjunction with the cookout. If you would like to participate, please bring your potted and labeled herb plants to the cookout. Some useful information to include would be sun requirements, annual/perennial, self-seeding and perhaps some ideas for how to use it. The swap will be held at around noon, followed by the cookout.

Hope to see everyone on the 18th!
