September is just around the corner, and so are ripe tomatoes (so they tell me), and so is the annual Gathering of the Gardeners held at our local Village Green Resort. The Gathering of Gardeners will be held on Sept 18-19 at the Village Greens' amazing grounds!! The Cottage Grove Garden Club had an informational booth there last year and we hope to have another one this year as well (calling all volunteers!!). So, gardeners, dust off your boots, grab your most ripe tomatoes for the Territorial Seed tomato taste-off, and join us for a weekend of art, demonstrations, plants and everything garden-related.

Dahlia Festival

We're excited! On Monday, August 30 we are debarking on our first official "road trip" to the Swan Island Dahlia Festival.

The Swan Island Dahlia Festival is a "must see" for anyone interested in dahlias or great flowers in general. We'll see over 400 floral arrangements of dahlias, have the chance to view demonstrations and talks on dahlia culture and tuber dividing, and stroll through over 40 acres of dahlias in full bloom.

Join us! If you are a member, call or email Andrea for more information. If you are not a member, become one so you can join us.

For more information about dahlias, Swan Island Dahlias, and the dahlia festival check out the video below.
