Do YOU know how valuable you are? The power of connections!

For many, Covid taught us a very valuable lesson. No man or woman is an island. Our mental health and personal well-being are directly connected to the quality of our relationships with those around us. We will discuss how to improve your own happiness and impact those around you by building quality connections.

Celebrate Nature

Are you discouraged by what’s happening in the world today? Join us and you’ll rediscover the wonders and possibilities that surround us everyday just waiting to be noticed and celebrated.

Container Gardening

Container gardening has become a hot topic in recent years as more of us are living in condos and apartments and would like to garden. Also, as we age, gardening with containers allows us to garden with less bending and kneeling. To be a successful container gardener, you need to know not only about the plants that grow in containers but also how growing in containers affects plants. The presentation will review the advantages and disadvantages of different container types, container soils and their characteristics, watering and fertilizing schedules, vegetable and flowering annual plants that are well suited for containers and designing container plantings.
