Silver Spring Garden Club September 2021 Meeting: MoCo Regulations on the Use of Pesticides and Lawn Care AND Plant Swap
Our next speaker meeting of the Silver Spring Garden Club
is Monday, September 20 at 8:00pm
Note: We are back in person and back to our later start time!
Join us on Monday, September 20, 2021, at 8:00pm, for a talk on “New MoCo Regulations on the Use of Pesticides and Lawn Care” by guest speaker Eric Wenger of Complete Lawn Care. Eric is an IPM Specialist for both turfgrass and ornamental plants in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Attendees are required to show proof of full vaccination and to wear a mask during the program and plant swap. (Masks may be removed for the refreshment period to eat and drink following the speakjer program and plant swap.) We plan on propping open all the doors to encourage cross-ventilation.
Talk to be followed by our annual PLANT SWAP!
At our September meeting, we traditionally hold a Plant Swap, start looking around for a nice* plant to bring. Be sure that it is potted up well in advance and in excellent health. We will draw numbers and each person that brings a plant will pick out a plant to take home.
*It can be an indoor plant. It can be store-bought. It can be a division from your garden. We just ask that it be of a decent size and quality — aim for something that if you saw it at a local garden center you would buy it yourself. Please label it and include as much detail as you can.
WHEN: Monday, September 20, 8:00pm
Doors open at 7:30pm
WHERE: Brookside Gardens
Visitors Center/Education Building
1800 Glenallan Avenue, Wheaton, Maryland
REFRESHMENTS will be provided after the talk by the following Silver Spring Garden Club members: Pauline Apling, Carol Benson, Catherine Blais and Wayne Smith, Kathy Jentz, Sue Smith, and Paula Cirincione.
Come early to take a walk around the gardens before our meeting -- sunset is about 7:15pm this month.
