Greetings from your
Vicki Sanders Corporon
As we dream and plan our evolving garden spaces, adding trees can really give incredible bang for the buck. Katie Rose Levin of Leaf and Limb (one of our club sponsors) spoke at our May meeting about how to select, plant and care for trees that enhance our lives and benefit wildlife too. Certainly their beauty will feed our spirit.
I’d like to thank all RGC volunteers and all of our loyal customers for a very successful Plant and Gift Sale that was held Mother’s Day weekend.
And, as always, please visit our Sponsors and let them know how much we appreciate their support!
