UPCOMING EVENTS YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS!
Thursday, February 4th, at 7:30 P.M.
Harrington Park Library, 10 Herring Street
Speaker - Gerri Gibney
“A GARDEN FOR THE SENSES; SIGHT, SMELL, TASTE, TOUCH, AND HEARING”
Gerri's talk and powerpoint presentation will ask “Why does anyone garden?” One of the answers is that a garden satisfies both the gardener and the viewer. We create for the visual, and we also look to stimulate the other four senses to make our gardens exciting and pleasing for ourselves and our visitors.
Gerri will show plants and other additions to the garden in order to incorporate all five senses in your garden with the tried and true of the plant world, and will also discuss many new plant cultivars recently brought to the garden marketplace to excite your sense of adventure -- she is always looking for the new and different.
Gerri is the founder and president of the Garden Club of Harrington Park, as well as the Harrington Park Historical Society, and the Arts Council of Harrington Park. Over the years she has given numerous garden lectures as well as hands-on floral workshops for Garden Clubs and other organizations.
Hostesses: Georgia Greiner & Marjorie Demarest
