Garden Club News

Lori Regni

Are you having trouble growing plants? Why not try to “Stamp Out” some instead. Lori Regni, a valued member of the club, will be giving a presentation on invasive plants. She’ll identify the varieties and ways to eradicate them here in Maricopa County. Lori is a “snowbird” from Wisconsin and a graduate of the Wisconsin Master Gardener program. She’s also a former technician for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

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 the guests and check out gardening books from our reference library and purchase any raffle tickets. There is also a “Free Stuff” table to review 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 guests often go across the street to the Sun Lakes Country Club for lunch afterward.
