Gardeners group plans next meeting

By Staff | May 10, 2013

The Gardeners Exchange Group (GEG) is an informal network of avid gardeners from Jefferson, Morgan and Berkeley counties and the nearby areas of Maryland and Virginia. Their purpose is to bring together people who share an interest in the practical, hands-on challenges and pleasures of gardening. Members are young and old; men and women; retired and working people; professional gardeners, master gardeners and beginners. The gardening interests of GEG members are just as diverse: wildflowers to roses, fruit trees to mushrooms, water gardening to Xeriscaping.

GEG members share information, resources, expertise, labor, plants, and experiences through monthly meetings, garden visits, and special events. They meet at 9:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month, April through October. They welcome new members!

The next meeting is May 18 at 9:30 a.m. at the home of Diana Eldridge in Shepherdstown. The topic for discussion is “Native Plants and Wildflowers.” Bring chairs, a cup for coffee, plants or other garden items to share and ideas to make this year’s garden the best ever.For more information, consult the GEG Website at www.g-e-g.org or call Carole Brooks, 240 405 7013.
