Silver Spring Garden Club May 2022 Meeting: Black Flora

The next speaker meeting of the Silver Spring Garden Club...

"Tool Sharpening and Maintenance"

Learn how to select, care for, and maintain your garden tools from the experts at the Roaming Stone sharpening service (

MEETING START TIME: Monday, June 20, 7:30pm (doors open at 7:00pm)

WHERE: Brookside Gardens
Visitors Center/Education Building
1800 Glenallan Avenue, Wheaton, Maryland

OUTDOOR PLANS: Weather permitting, we plan to meet outdoors on the patio just outside the auditorium. You will need to carry a chair outside and bring it back in afterwards, if you want to sit during the talk/demonstration. There are no outdoor speakers/microphones, so sound could be an issue.  Also, there is no lighting outside, but the inside room lights will be turned on and the sun goes down fairly late in mid-June.

REFRESHMENTS are provided after the talk by the following Silver Spring Garden Club members: Margaret Dohmen, Cathy Dickerson, Christine Dunathan, Susan Gleason, and Sue Smith.

This meeting is FREE and open to all. Guests are welcome!

There will be a “freebies” table. Bring your plant cuttings, garden supplies, etc, to giveaway. Please pick up anything you brought that was not claimed at the end of the event.

We also encourage attendees to bring a flower in a vase to share on our “something blooming from the garden” table.

BONUS BOOK SALE! We will have vintage gardening books for sale at this meeting as well to raise funds for the Club's activities. A list of some of the available titles will be posted soon.
