This week in the garden – vol 63

Myofascial Stretching Class, Wednesday, July 20th 7-8:30pm at the cottage

Ladies don’t miss out!!!!  Join Jeanette Laskey at the Cottage for a Myofascial Stretching Class.  Jeanette will explain the importance of myofascial stretching and will get us involved in the exercises-bring a mat if you have one.  Jeanette just returned from two weeks Continuing Education in Sedona, AZ and is anxious to share what she has learned.  Please RSVP to Saundy.

Summer Book Club-Thursday, July 28th, 7:30P at the Cottage

Join club members in reading Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants” by Robin Wall Kimmerer.  Highly recommended read by Staci Catron during the Cherokee Garden Club Library tour at the Atlanta History Center. An excerpt from the Amazon review: “Drawing on her life as an Indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings―asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass―offer us gifts and lessons, even if we've forgotten how to hear their voices.”

New Member Orientation on Tuesday August 23, 7:00 pm.

The meeting will be held at our Cottage. If you have never participated in this meeting, please feel free to join us. If you know someone who is interested in learning more about our club, please share this information.

Gail Thompson, Susan Welch, and Kathy Sumner, we appreciate your time preparing for our visit and for sharing your gifts. It was such a treat. Thank you for a delightful Thursday morning.
