Members enjoyed (private) field trip tours and lunches at the Olive Mill in March, Butterfly Wonderland in April, and Schnepf Farms Peach Festival in May!

The featured guest for the July 20 meeting is Josh Waltemeyer, whose family owns Treeland Nursery. Josh is a favorite among members, and he’ll discuss the importance of amending your soil and answer all of the members’ questions. Sometimes Josh brings special plants or plant supplements for the members to purchase.
