Dallas County Gardener’s May Meeting

Did you know that anyone can attend a Dallas County Master Gardener meeting? Tomorrow we are hosting the May meeting at our new garden with the purpose of talking to our membership and friends about the progress of The Raincatcher’s Garden of Midway Hills.

Come so you can hear from our exciting array of speakers: Elizabeth, Eric, Lisa, and Susan. Learn from them, education is the purpose of our garden. We will be sharing detailed plant information tomorrow and on this blog through hand outs created by Elizabeth.   Take a look at our garden plans and tour The Raincatcher’s Garden to understand the height and depth of what we are trying to do on about an acre of land in North Dallas.

Oregano, Phlox, Tomato Starts, Fig Trees, Cast Iron, Coneflower, Turk’s Cap- Great Prices!

Fill up your card with homegrown plants from our member’s own gardens. We have tables of little starts you’ve just got to take home at Sarah’s “cheap” prices.  Plants will be priced from $1 to $5, with a few special items priced a tiny bit more.  Plan on filling up your cart!  Yesterday it was hard for me to pass by the phlox I saw from Susan’s garden!

Bricks make the perfect contribution to the new garden.

Honor a loved one, recognize the special person that introduced them to gardening, or remember a friend or family member with a personalized brick.  The bricks will serve as part of the entry to the Raincatcher’s Garden under the newly reassembled arbor.  Bricks are priced at $50 for a 4”x 8” size or $125 for an 8” x 8” brick.  Orders will be taken at the May 28 meeting with installation later this year. If you would like to participate and can’t come to the meeting, leave a comment and we will contact you.

Cash, checks or credit cards accepted.

A note about our lunch sales: Thank you to the 98 who purchased box lunches to enjoy during the meeting.

To accommodate feeding almost 100 people we had to stay firm with our reservation deadline. Oh, the planning that goes into an assembly of cooks like we have had the last few days! Hope any who missed the deadline for lunches will understand. We will have more events this summer. Subscribe to Dallas Garden Buzz, to get the details first!

Confession: I didn’t sign up for lunch in time, but you can be sure I will be first in line for a fig tree!!
