The Arenal Garden Club is “Off and Planting!” On Feb. 14, Eduardo Gómez from Sabilito led the group on an amazing tour of his organic gardens, while delivering mini lectures on such topics as air-layering and using old banana trunks as seed starters. He included many valuable gardening tips that anyone can master.
Don’t forget that Eduardo sells his organic produce at the Cinco Esquinas Feria every other Sunday. Carla’s bagels are an added attraction! (Bring your own cream cheese).
An organizational meeting was held with elections. Congrats to President Victoria Torley and Vice President Shirley McKale.
As for future events, a March 4 Plant Exchange will be held at the Torley home in Aguacate. During the later part of March (the exact date to be announced) an herb and medicinal plant lecture will be given at the Maleku Condos. Thank you to Jeff Spencer for organizing the details.
The April meeting will be held at the Lahny McCray house in Tronodora. Lee McCray, who is a professional landscape designer, will be the featured speaker. Specific questions or suggestions can be addressed to Torley@comcast.net. The weather is spectacular and the gardeners are enthusiastic.
Join the club!
