Meeting Calendar 2019-2020


  • Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, our meetings have been cancelled until further notice

    New Location!
    We will meet at Center 50+ (see above for address)

    We'll have the always energetic and informative Lee Cheatle discussing re-potting and growing medias. As deciduous buds start to swell and conifers
    begin to grow again in the late winter, its time to re-pot. Lee is a wealth of information for both beginners and experts alike.
