Part of The Commons still in disrepair (by Whitney Miller)

Here are a few events we would like you to know about.

  • 9:30 tomorrow morning (Wednesday 9/4/13) the Herbal Renewal group will be touring the BGS site, including the visitor center.
  • The Art Center’s Art in the Garden grand opening reception  is this Friday at Building 50’s north Mercado from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. – the Botanic Garden will have a display so you’re encouraged to drop by, view the artwork and have a snack.
  • As I mentioned, you’re also welcome to join us at the Visitor Center Saturday morning at 9:30 to select tables and chairs.
  • Anyone willing to help with the advertising/marketing piece for our Revolutionary Gardens benefit is encouraged to come to the home of Karen Schmidt this Thursday at 5:30 p.m.  I’ll provide hot dogs, lemonade and homemade pie and we’ll pass out posters and contact information.  Folks will be asked to help by delivering a poster or two to a specified place, contacting a garden club or other group, or following up with a newspaper, radio or TV on a press release.  Anyone who could help would be greatly appreciated.
