Karen Wollscheid, Publicity, Weeders Garden Club

The Weeders Garden Club meets monthly to learn from informative speakers on all aspects of gardening. We also enjoy field trips to interesting places in the Valley. Whether you are new to garden clubs or have spent your life interested in growing things, we welcome you!

On Feb. 13, we welcome speaker Eric Olsen on the topic of Container and Raised Bed Gardening. Eric will focus on assorted options that gardeners have, besides putting plants directly in the earth. He will cover options that are available and the pros and cons for them, as well as how to maximize your available space and what growing mediums are ideal.
