Some New Links

It was great to see so many people at the meeting last week!

We have some new email subscribers so I thought I'd share some links and make sure they are receiving the email at the same time.

Habitat Gardening in Central New York

Phoenix Flower Farm - They aren't too far from Oliver Paine Greenhouses. Right now the sign out front still says "By Appointment or Chance" but they should be opening for the season soon.

Seneca Hill Perennials - Located between Oswego and Fulton. They have open days starting in May. Check their website for details.

If you have links you think our members would be interested in please send them to me and I will add them to the next newsletter. I'd also like to be able to share any information on upcoming tours or workshops that you hear about.

Symposium - Lake Placid

The Sixth Annual Great Gardens and Landscape Symposium will be held April 24-25 in Lake Placid. You can find the details here.

A bit of a budget breaker for me personally but I thought I'd pass the information along. It would make for a great friends weekend get-a-way.

Hat tip to Cathy Purdy at Cold Climate Gardening for sharing the information.

March Newsletter

March is finally here and it's time to start thinking about our gardens and getting together with our Gardening Friends! The executive committee met in February and have a nice program lined up for us this year.

We are moving back to the Pulaski Wesleyan Church on Route 11 this year and meetings will begin at 7:00 pm unless otherwise noted. (There are a few meetings scheduled to take place at other locations so be sure to check your newsletter.)

March Meeting

We will start out the year with a business meeting at the Pulaski Wesleyan Church on March 18th at 7:00 PM. Dues are still just $10 and due at the first meeting, no later than the April meeting.

Lorice will fill you in on the plans for the year. There will be several sign up sheets for so please bring your calendar and plan to sign up for as many things as you can - many hands make for light work! Everyone is asked to take a turn providing refreshments and there will also be sign up sheets for the Plant Sale, Garden Tour and Oswego County Fair.

Mailing the newsletter to all our members has once again become cost prohibitive so we are asking that everyone with online access get their newsletter here, either by email subscription or by simply checking the website. If you wish to sign up to receive the newsletter via email simply enter your email address into the box on the right hand side of the page and follow the directions. You will then receive an email with a link that you must click on in order to confirm your subscription. If you encounter any problems please contact me.

The pictures used today were all taken on Buffalo Garden Walk last year. Wouldn't it be nice to have pictures from our meetings and gardens? We are also looking to update the club scrapbook so if you have pictures to share or are willing to volunteer as a club photographer please let Lorice know at the meeting.

Planning Ahead

In April we will be meeting at Three Mums Greenhouses and Garden Center for a tour and business meeting.

You can find a tentative calendar for 2009 here.
