Richard Shanahan, Linda Hundley Lisa Wolf, Barrie Hazelton, Barb Goodlett, Pat Mueske, Libby Stewart, Audrey Holt and invited guest Diana Wiegand.
Each assumed a responsibility: Horticulture Table, SIGs (Special Interest Groups), Garden Walks and Tours.
TOURS: Lisa Wolf will undertake arranging Tours -email@example.com Anna Marie mentioned a trip to Springfield to visit the Xeriscape Garden that the last Seminar Speaker, Patrick Byers, talked about. Lisa has contacted Barbara St. Claire, the head gardener at the Xeriscape Garden, about parking for five or so cars, the best day to visit, hoping someone could meet us, possibly on a Saturday when the Farmers Market is running.
GARDEN WALKS: Barbara Goodlett firstname.lastname@example.org is the contact for members wishing to host a Garden Walk– Barb has forms for hosting a garden walk and garden etiquette for visiting a garden. When ready to have a garden walk let Barb know and she will contact membership with date, time and location.
SIGs: Pat Mueske email@example.com is the contact for members wishing to lead a SIG – Special Interest Group - This may come up if someone wants to have an educational group meeting in which the rest of the membership may not have an interest. The person leading the group/topic usually does most of the planning and emailing. We tossed around several thoughts about possible SIGs as a Seed Bomb activity and some garden crafts that members make. Last year Debbie Anderson had several on making ‘Papercrete’.
