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

Saturday, March 19th - Field trip and Luncheon to “Springfest”, Augusta, N. J.

Depart Harrington Park Library Parking Lot at 9:00 A.M., and carpool to what is known as the "gardener's show."  

Inspiring and educating gardeners for 20 years, Springfest returns just in time to help you through those last gray, snowy, slushy, muddy days of winter. The sun-drenched warmth of the Springfest Conservatory will be filled with garden displays overflowing with color, fragrance, and inspiration for visitors to glean ideas for their own gardens. The area’s premier landscape companies and garden designers are on hand throughout the show to share their knowledge or set up consultations.

Visitors will find great shopping and horticultural services in every nook and cranny of the 35,000 sq. ft. extravaganza; everything from topiaries, garden tools and seeds to arborists, plant societies and master gardeners.
