Master Gardener scheduled to speak at Giving Garden Saturday

The Durham-Middlefield Giving Garden is sporting a bumper crop this year, and we continue to welcome weekly Saturday speakers from 11 a.m. to noon. Hard rain/thunderstorms cancel.

Our presenter on Aug. 13 will be Rosalee Lamphier, a Master Gardener and garden-inspired cook, who will wander around the Giving Garden and share some tips and recipes, as well as tastes, with attendees.

On Aug. 20, Joy Starratt of Durham will demonstrate and help attendees create a pounded flower/herb/leaf craft.

Joy will provide all materials, but asks you to bring a small hammer if you have one.

These talks are free and open to everyone.

Please bring your own chair and a sandwich if you’d like and join us in a beautiful place tended entirely by volunteers and dedicated to advancing organic gardening and feeding local families. Drinks provided.

And just maybe you would like to come a bit early.

While Wednesday work mornings seem to attract a nice group of volunteers, Saturday mornings, from 9 to 11 a.m., have been a bit sparse, and we welcome new and returning volunteers.

No gardening experience necessary. Our manager, Betsy St. John, knows exactly how to use everyone’s skills and will help you find a comfortable task.

Come when you can and meet friends new and old.

Call Betsy at 860-807-5242 if you have any questions about volunteering.

For questions regarding the speaker series, you can call me, Sue, at 860-836-1768.
