Our December general meeting program will be a revisit by the talented and engaging designer, garden lecturer and writer, Tim Elliot. He'll take us through a fast-paced demonstration on using things from the garden for holiday decorating. We will sell raffle tickets for the lucky winners to take home a holiday arrangement. The 2019-2020 program year will include three workshops held in the Ruby McSwain Education Center at the JC Raulston Arboretum.
