Woodlands Garden Club meets once a month - the first Thursday of the month at Gull Lanai. Out schedule starts in November through March. Meetings start at 9 a.m. and usually run about an hour We have Ruth Russell as Education Director giving us a report each month on something of interest - either butterflies or plants/shrubs or trees. She tells a great story. Our membership chair is Janine Byrnes. Please call her at 330-219-7300 Rail 30. or Carolyn Kline at 269-998-3687 Gull 38, or Kathy Payne at 701-412-1758, Gull 25 if you would like to join us. We are always on the lookout for new members.
If you don’t like attending meetings, we have a workers’ list. All you need to do is supply your e-mail and phone # (name and circle/lot as well) to one of the three listed above - and we’ll contact you next time we have more to do than members available! Training will be given. Things that we often need help with our weed pulling, mulching, planting, laying bricks, and pruning in the spring and fall. It seems there is always something to do.
You can sign up at the Activity Fair - which is Wednesday, January 10, 2018. The Garden Club has a booth with information and sign-up sheets.
Our one-day plant sale is Friday, January 5, 2018, starting at 8 a.m. and running until we run out of plants! We are selling raffle tickets for our raffle drawing for $1 each. Raffle prizes are a beautiful basket with roughly $500 of fun things, a beautiful hand-made butterfly quilt, and 3rd prize is a large hanging basket. Come out and support your local butterfly garden - a $1 raffle ticket may get you one of the above prizes.
Please come to the garden and watch the butterflies in action - 10-2 p.m. are the most active times. After Irma, they are slowly coming back and we’ve seen 5 or 6 different varieties in December.
Come and see what you can do to help -- playing in the dirt if fun!
