Just letting you know that between Volunteer Fair, Seminar, Plant Sale,and Farmers Market we have added 12 new potential MG fall class members. There were 10 signed up for last year. So that makes about 22 IF I can still add??
In my conversations with people regarding MG classes many hope to join after they retire. Some feel they are not "smart" enough to participate with one lady thinking it was a college degree class. Most just do not have time. I met a nice lady in a gardening store recently and she told me she was retiring this week and hopes to join MG and keeps up-to-date through the local paper newspaper articles.
Since we have the wonderful MG Brochures which explains MG and the classes, I would encourage each member to share one with a friend!! Sometimes we just need to "OM" open our mouth and share.
The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden.
