Garden Club Ended 2022 with 140 Members!

Master Gardener Cathy Rymer

Do you know the right time to prune your plants in Arizona, and do you know the proper technique? Master Gardener Cathy Rymer will be sharing her knowledge of “Best Pruning Practices for Arizona Gardens” on Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Cathy Rymer is the former water conservation coordinator for the City of Chandler, a Master Gardener with the University of Arizona, a certified arborist, and certified landscape irrigation auditor.

Visitors are always welcome to attend a meeting or field trip before deciding to join. Members with no previous gardening experience are welcome and are not required to live in Sun Lakes.

Meetings are held every month (including summer) on the third Tuesday. Attendees gather at 9:30 a.m. to socialize and enjoy refreshments and coffee. During this first half hour, we greet visitors and check out gardening books from our reference library and purchase any raffle tickets. There is also a “Free Stuff” table where members donate citrus or herbs or plants for other members. The meeting is called to order at 10 a.m. The meeting ends at approximately 11:45 a.m., and members and visitors often go across the street to the Sun Lakes clubhouse for lunch afterward.
