Coming Up Roses!

On May 17, 2016, Worcester Garden club members were treated to a rose-growing workshop led by Joan Laracy. Twelve members and one spouse were enlightened by Joan and were excited to get back to their gardens to plant in new roses and buff up old.

Share the Excitement of a Pollinator Project

Who are the pollinators? Birds, bees, bats butterflies, moths, beetles other animals or the wind. Many of these pollinators are in trouble, mostly from environmental abuse.

An ad-hoc committee has been formed to explore the idea of a WGC project that would promote and protect pollinators and would ideally involve our entire membership while collaborating with other Worcester County institutions.

Several of our area organizations are already involved in pollinator projects so our first step is to explore just what everyone is planning and then hopefully fill in the gaps.

We discovered several wonderful resources including www.pollinator.org . It is wonderfully comprehensive and worth a visit.
