A Special Program

On September 11, the Metropolitan Washington Garden Club (formerly the Men’s Garden Club of Montgomery County) has monthly meetings in the Bethesda area, at which a speaker usually presents information in his/her speciality.  Once a year a meeting we have a session we call “Brag night”, at which several Club members present a brief “show and tell” about something they have done in their own gardens or that they know about that is of interest to the other gardeners.  We are pleased to host a public series of similar 10 minute presentations on September 11, 2011, inside the main Behnke’s building (between the cashiers and the tools areas), at the these times on any of the following subjects:

10:00 am, Nick Weber: “Why I love to grow Dahlias”

11:00 am, Jerry Snyder: “House Plants- new and old loves”

12:00 pm, Caroline Turner: “Rain Gardens”

1:00 pm, Richard Levine: “A few little known but highly useful garden tools”

2:00 pm, Chris Keller: “David Fairchild, the gift of Cherry trees for the Tidal Basin, and the introduction of Japanese Maples into American gardens”

3:00 pm, Robert Hanson: “Efforts to preserve Potomac’s past- the Rural and Rustic Roads program”

4:00 pm, Joyce Seng: “How to build a German/wattle fence” 

No reservations are necessary, just come by at the designated time(s) for your interest(s).
