Greetings from your
Vicki Sanders Corporon
This year our motto is “Dig in and grow the friendships and the fun!” Each of the Raleigh Garden Club members brings a unique skill set and unique interests that enable our wide diversity of community involvements and accomplishments. If you’re just learning about our club, please check out the About RGC section to get a sense of how the club has grown and supported gardening, the environment, landscape and floral design for more than 90 years.
In addition to my love of gardening, I’m an enthusiastic reader and retired librarian, so it became one of my goals as president to share titles of good books on gardening and invite member contributions. We now have that list, “Suggested Reading” under the “Activities” Menu.
In anticipation of the holiday season, and perhaps the interest by some of our members to buy or check out books that would cultivate an interest in gardening with your young children or grandchildren, I’ve added some recommended Youth books to the list. . The non-fiction books would definitely lend themselves to follow-up activities.
And, as always, don’t forget to visit our Sponsors and let them know how much we appreciate their support!
