All Seasons Garden Club meets at member’s home


Staff Reports

The April meeting of the All Seasons Garden Club was April 4 at the home of Becky Hackman with Kathy Cunningham as co-hostess.

Thirteen members attended and were seated at tables decorated in an Easter theme with Easter baskets filled with goodies as table favors.

Guest speaker Tim Warren of Brownstown talked about his growing techniques for his zinnia and vegetable gardens and fruit trees and the types of soil and fertilizer he recommends. He also answered questions from members and presented the group with several types of zinnia seeds he uses in his gardens and surprised the group with coconut and peanut butter pies.

A light meal of sandwiches, salad and pie with drinks was served.

President Jean Barkman conducted a brief business meeting and read a thank-you card from member Darlene Groseclose, who has had health issues.

Rita Wischmeier gave the treasurer’s report and also collected dues from the members, and Shirley Lewis recommended a potential candidate to represent the club in the Jackson County Fair queen contest.

Julie Ballard was contacted by Kaila Knies, regional specialist with the Indiana Cooperative Invasives Management, who asked if any of the members would be interested in becoming a mentor of the Jackson County Invasive Partnership.

Ballard reported the May meeting will be at her home with Martha Wilson as co-hostess.

Door prizes were awarded to Wilson and Peggy Broshears, and the rest of the evening was spent visiting.
