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. Tueir 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. The group meets at 9:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month, April through October. They welcome new members!

The next meeting is Saturday, Aug. 17, at 9:30 a.m. at the Blue Morning Farm, 1438 Billmyer Mill Road, Shepherdstown,

The farmer will show and tell us about the ups and downs of growing produce to sell. Bring chairs, a cup for coffee, a breakfast dish, plants or other garden items to share and ideas and suggestions to make this a wonderful gardening season. Great recipes to use all of those garden products would be great to share as well.
