From Our President

President’s Letter Spring, 2023

As I look out on this Spring morning, the snow cover is quickly melting and the crocuses are beginning to appear. It's an exciting time for me as a gardener as I look to discover what plants have made it through our winter and plan for what I will start in my small greenhouse to be planted later in the season.

As a club, we are beginning to plan for our major fundraiser, our Plant Sale. The digging crews will be out on their rounds in just a few weeks digging up donated plants that our potting teams will be ready to plant with fresh soil donated by Country Fare. We will be collecting garden items for our Garden Treasures tables and will look to see if there are houseplants or tender herbs that will be ready to be sold. The Plant Sale is scheduled for May 13th this year (always the Saturday before Mother's Day) at Library Park here in Bath.

Following the Plant Sale, we will meet as a club for our Annual Luncheon to celebrate our accomplishments and to install our new slate of officers.

Things slow down for us a bit during the summer. Our Civic Beautification teams tend our gardens and we also take time to focus on our own gardens. We typically have two visitations planned but there is no word to date as to where we will explore this year.

It is my hope that you will review our list of meetings and activities with an eye on joining us.

Happy gardening,
Joan Toy, President
