Gardener’s Exchange ready for spring

By Staff | Mar 25, 2016

Gardener’s Exchange Group (GEG) is an informal network of avid gardeners from Jefferson and Berkeley counties and beyond. 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; professionals, retired and working people; 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 on the third Saturday of the month, April through October. Sign up on the website to be on the GEG mailing list.

The first meeting of the year will take place Saturday, April 16 at 9 .m. at Hill’s Farm Fresh Produce where the focus will be on “Seedlings” with Dave Hill, owner of the Fruit and Veggie Wagon. Meet at Walnut Hill, home to Hill’s Farm Fresh Produce, operators of The Fruit and Veggie Wagon (on the corner of Rt. 340 & Old Country Club Road). Hill’s Farm Fresh Produce is owned by David and Missy Hill. Breakfast is at 9 a.m. Share this winter’s experiences over coffee and breakfast. Please bring a breakfast dish if possible, a chair, extra plants and enthusiasm for learning and growing. The program begins at 9:30 a.m., rain or shine.
