Join us April 6, 2010 for a program on Worm Composting

Carol Boissevain of Three Trees Farm will talk about the benefits of worm composting verses thermal composting and how to make your own worm bin without spending an arm and a leg. She will also answer any questions you have about worm composting, and have supplies and fresh bagged castings (worm poo!) available for purchase.

Please join us at our April meeting for this exciting program: 6:00pm, Room 130, LCC-Cottage Grove Campus. All visitors are welcome.

Planting Parties

Last Sunday we had our first of two planting parties to prepare for the upcoming Spring Plant Fair on May 8. Not only did we have a good time getting those little plants divided and nestled into new soil, but I saw a lot of great plants getting prepared -- white asters, hybrid pacific coast irises, heucheras. More plants are ready to be divided at the next planting party on Monday, March 22 from noon to 2:00. If you want to join us, email Andrea for directions (andrea.flowerista at gmail.com).
