letter from the president
Past, Present, and Future
Another year begins full of new ideas, goals for further improvement, and a better organization for our Master Gardener members. Over the last few years, our organization has developed a new website that should be able to grow and improve with members input. We are back to holding our Annual Garden Tour and participating in the Annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale, which we were in charge of in 2016. Master Gardener Karen Larsen chaired the event in 2016 along with help from you the members, a big thank you to all of you who participated in any form!
2016 brought new members to the Master Gardener community with the Master Gardener Class being held and class members being very active in our plant sale, garden tour, working at Gruening Park and Wildflower Court. Members also participated in our annual garden tour which was held in June of 2016. Thank you again to our many members who made this happen and our chair Melissa Plosay.
In 2017 the board will continue to bring you educational opportunities with monthly learning meetings held each month. Watch for the newsletter or check out the website to see the upcoming topics. Our first quarter presentations will be on Primrose propagation, Succulents and Dahlias. Joel Bos will be leading hands-on work and learning group starting in May at the Master Gardener Plot at the Community Gardens.
This year we will host a Primrose Garden Tour in May and our Annual Garden Tour in July. Watch the newsletter and website for more information on these events. Every member can contribute to the Master Gardener Community in some way and everyone’s participation will improve and make our organization more vibrant.
I would like to express my heart felt gratitude to all of you who have served on the board, participated at the events or have helped the Master Gardener Association in any way. Serving as your President has brought me a wonder group of friends and associates that it is a pleasure to be part of! I am looking forward to a green and successful 2017 working with all of you!
