July Message from the President

Supposedly the lavender fragrance promotes calm but our July meeting was anything but. Nan Franz taught us to make lavender wands and Carolyn Havicon, owner of Bluestone Meadow Lavender Farm, brought a huge basket of lavender to use. As usual Nan was awesome. She showed us what to do, went around helping individual members and of course made us think with a lavender crossword puzzle. There was lots of chatter and laughter and members will think of the meeting every time they open their underwear drawer. Thanks again gals.


Another big event that day was the unveiling of the sign Sandy Euyen made for our Herb Garden at the Fairgrounds. Thank you very much Sandy, it’s beautiful. We are so blessed to have talented members like Sandy! 


We have more interesting meetings coming up:

  • August 6 – VETS - Herbalist Peggy Holmes will talk to us about Herbal Definitions. We’ll also be having a drawing. For the new members, members bring nice, gently used, sometimes new items and we sell tickets to benefit our treasury and the charitable causes we support.
  • September 10 - Gosia Porwit will present on Parsley, the International Herb Association 2021 Herb of the year. We will also have a food and clothing drive for the Veterans.
  • October 1 – VETS – Putting Your Garden to Bed – Master Gardeners Cheryl Turner and Cindy Young will teach us all the things we should do in the fall to get our gardens ready for the winter and spring.

Be thinking about ideas for next year’s program schedule. We have two suggestions so far:

propagating herbs and the 2022 Herb Of The Year: Viola.


Wishing you a cool month,

Jan
