Camden Garden Club winter series begins Jan. 29
Camden — Spring and summer will make their 2013 debut in the Camden Library’s Picker Room on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 10 a.m. with the first of this year’s Camden Garden Club Winter Horticulture lectures.
The series of five lectures will start with Container Gardening by Rebecca Jacobs, who is education coordinator for Knox-Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District, as well as owner of Gabriella’s Gardens, a horticultural consulting business in Rockland.
The remaining lectures will be every Tuesday in February, at the same time, same place. The topics will include, in order: Bugs!; Favorite Plants for Maine Gardens; The Rise of American Gardening in the 19th Century; and Dancing with Dahlias. All are free.
The Camden Garden Club is entering its 98th year of cultivating the art of gardening, developing and preserving beauty in and around Camden, and promoting civic improvements and conservation of natural resources. It’s a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine. Meetings are open to anyone interested and new members are always welcome.
If the horticulture series is here, can spring be far behind? Yes, actually. But dreaming and planning next season’s gardens makes winter so much easier to take.
