January 2021 Free Speaker Series

Gardeners Connect is bringing back the Free Speaker Series for 2021. It will all be digital for the time being using Google Meet, which is available on internet browsers on PC and Mac and via apps for Android and iPhone. It even allows someone to dial in with just their phone. We did a lot of searching for some format that reached the most people, didn’t require a user account or software to download, was affordable for Gardeners Connect, and provided the most flexibility.

It all starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 16, 2021 when we take a journey with Gardeners Connect Board member and newsletter writer Bibie Chronwall as she presents, “Gardens, Gardeners and Gardening: Vignettes through History.” The journey will take us through gardens from many cultures and times established by renowned gardeners of many philosophies and styles. We will see furniture, garden ornamentation and tools that range from the useful to the whimsical to the never-ever-in-my-garden. There are trends and fashions in gardening throughout time though you should create your own garden that brings you joy, beauty, creativity, contemplation and a workout.

The meeting will start at 10 a.m. with election of executive committee and new board members and the vote on bylaws update.
