We are currently setting the meetings for this year. Please check back soon to find out the great activities and speakers we will have.
September 14th, 1PM
Annual Members Plant Sale
Allen Centennial Gardens, UW Madison Campus
This is an annual members only plant sale.
Members share plants from their own gardens. The plants are then purchased by other members as a donation to the chapter. Plants both common and very special will be available. Prices are always reasonable.
Members are encouraged to bring other things such as books or magazines to contribute as well.
Bring a a sack luncheon to eat while checking out the plants before the sale and the wonderful national award winning Rock Garden.
The following lots will be available for free parking: Crewhouse circle Lot# 35 north of the garden, Tripp Hall Lot# 34 to the east past the dorms and the Steenbock ramp across the street although you still have to pull a ticket to enter and leave.
October 19th, 1PM
Speaker Dave Collura
Topic: Great Lakes Chapter Gala
West Madison Agricultural Research Center, Madison WI
Our next meeting is coming right up, on Saturday October 19 at the West Ag Research Station at 11:00, and will be our first real chance this fall to start mapping out events and activities for next year. The program will be give by Dave Collura, on some of the amazing gardens that were on display in the Ann Arbor area at the Great Lakes chapter's spring gala this year.
November 16th 1PM
Annual Business Meeting + Officer elections
Dane County Extension, 1 Fen Oak Ct, Madison WI
Note from Chair Damon Smith:
Most of the current officers will be glad (or at least willing) to stand for re-election, but this is my second and last year as chairperson so Dave Collura has agreed to move back into the chair if members wish. He'll vacate the vice chairperson slot, so we need nominations for that position as well as for someone to either share or take over the secretary's job to help Lynn Groeschel who can't make it to every meeting. Anyone who's interested in either of these positions or who knows someone who they think would make a good candidate, please contact any of the current officers to make that nomination or suggestion. I've found being involved in the operation of the society an educational and (mostly) rewarding experience, and I expect that there are a number of members out there who would feel the same.
Saturday TBD, 9AM to 4PM
