January 2006

Thanks Pansy Purchasers, Planters and Cooking Class Supporters!!!    
Butterfly Express patrons not only received a great price for pansies ($2.50 per 6 in. pot), they earned 32 free pansies for the Garden Club.  And from proceeds generated at the Thai Cooking Class in August, Yarrow, Coreopsis and Asters were purchased.   All have been planted at the front entry or along
Kendall.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to these events/projects.

No Current Garden Club Agenda
To finance future projects/events, a neighborhood Chili Cook Off was proposed at the Nov. Luncheon. Due to lack of support, there are no current plans.  If you want to change that, get
virtually involved. (See next segment)

Dig This...  The Garden Club is Going Virtual
No need to take time out of a hectic schedule for meetings.  Participate in the Garden Club via an e-mail forum.  To become a CHS virtual gardener, simply e-mail with “Garden Club” in the subject area. In response, you’ll receive a short survey requesting info about what you’d like the Garden Club to be.  Survey results will be e-mailed out to respondents and future Garden Club efforts will focus on the interest of participants.  You don’t need to know anything about gardening to participate.  Only a willingness to contribute ideas and/or opinions via e-mail is required.   And, of course, membership does have privileges:  Members will receive discounts to & early notice of events, like cooking classes, that may have space limitations.
