Garden Interest Group for Santa Fe Gardeners
BIG will start as a Zoom version of sitting at the kitchen table with a cuppa and good friends. We'll talk about plants we love and gardens we want; plants we've killed and those that thrived. And, when appropriate, we'll go OUTSIDE to visit member gardens, plant vendors, and special landscapes.
We have a few ideas: fall planting and to-do's; winter watering (selfie prizes awarded); planting summer/winter pots; cluster landscaping and drift planting; vegetable visions, and mulching merit badges.
PLEASE COME to our introductory Zoom meeting on Tuesday, October 13 (2-4pm)to share your topic ideas/interests and to plan mini-garden gatherings (masked and distanced, of course).
