SPRING MEETING - 2012
Knox County Garden Club Members met April 16 for the 2012 Spring Meeting. Acovered dish dinner was enjoyed by all! Audrey Spearman conducted the business meeting. Kudos go to her and all the people who helped her put on a wonderful meeting!!!
A highlight of the evening was the very informational and entertaining demonstration on arranging some of the newer style arrangements.
The second part of the program was presented by Pat Wells, another well-known OAGC Judge from Region 7 demonstrated the Mono-Botanic design. This design uses any part of a specified genus to create the arrangement. One arrangement was done with beautiful roses then converted with a focal point being yellow delicious apples. See pics on our Facebook page. Link to Facebook on Home page.
|SPRING Meeting 2011
The Knox County Association of Garden Clubs had their annual spring meeting and smorgasbord on April 11 At Floral Valley.
Guest speaker was Heather Doherty, program manager at The Brown Family Environmental Center at Kenyon College. She told members about the mission of the Center, which is to engage Central Ohioans of all ages with nature.
The Center has almost 500 acres and 8 miles of trails. It conducts program for the public, hosts school field trips and encourages outdoor fitness by sponsoring runs. It seeks to conserve natural spaces; conserve natural diversity by removing invasive plants, restoring woodlands, planting wildlife gardens filled with native plants, and erecting bluebird houses.
Heather also talked about native plants. She defined native plants as those that originated in the Midwest region. Some non-natives have been around so long that we consider them native; i.e. Queen Anne’s lace, mullin, dock, chicory, plantain and dame’s rocket. Some of these are not invasive so we tolerate and usually welcome them in yards and fields. Some of the invasive non-native plants are multiflora rose, privet, amur honeysuckle, garlic mustard and Japanese barberry.
She suggested the following as good substitutes for these unwelcome plants; highbush bluberry, serviceberry, viburnums, inkberry, winterberry, spicebush, wild ginger, phlox, liatris, New England aster, beebalm, coneflower and butterfly weed.
