I like to think of our garden club as little seeds that have been placed on this earth to beautify it, to care for it, and to grow in the knowledge of gardening. Over the years, through our own studies and experiences, we have learned so much about nurturing our own gardens and caring for our environment. There is still so much more to learn! I am hopeful during the next two years we will use that knowledge and creativity to make a difference in our local area, by working on community related projects. We will also use our knowledge and ideas to educate others on the merits of gardening, in addition to promoting the importance of protecting our native plants, birds and natural resources.

The importance of reaching out to others in our community is great, and I would like to encourage us all to participate in local garden related projects, as individuals and as a club. The possibilities in our area are endless, as are the ways that we can educate and help others. Through imagination, planning, and working together, we can make a difference!

During the next two years, I am hoping that like little seeds, we will grow and inspire others in our community to appreciate nature and to learn from it.
