Flower Arranging From The Garden

To be held on March 1st, at 10:00 am, at Wilhelmina’s house, 597 Lowell road.
The Workshop was given before also in March 5 years ago and will be similar in content, but with some additions and changes.
The participants will be provided with a list of plant material that has interest during all seasons.
Then a demonstration of 8 arrangements will take place, using these plant materials, with addition of purchased flowers.
Attention will be given to the choice of containers, repurposing commercial glass, also using baskets and other materials and converting these into holders for the arrangements. Mechanics to hold branches and flower stems into place will be touched on briefly.
Duration of the workshop is approximately 1 1/2 hours. Refreshments will be served.
Limited to 14 participants. No cost involved.

Supplies Needed for Herb Planters-Plant Sale


I would  like to put out an appeal for some supplies we need for making  herb planters for the Plant Sale. They sold out last year, so we thought we would do them again in some form this year.
What we need are:
– wooden (not the kind with cardboard sides) clementine boxes
– lids (not the containers)  from the 16 oz. size of plastic clamshells from greens. The kind that baby spinach and spring mix come in. Pix attached. These make great trays inverted to fit inside the boxes and hold a bit of water when the plants are watered.
We try to do these in January before Pat Lescalleet-Lashley and Kate Wharton leave for sunny Florida so need them asap and not after February 1.
Dropped off at 53 Hubbard St., on my front porch.
Thank you! Ellen Matheson
