The Downtown Development Authority will hold a garden club interest meeting in Homer on Saturday, May 5, from 10-11a.m., at the Old Fire Station at Historic Homer Highway and Athens Street.
“Garden Clubs are an excellent means to meet new friends, build a more active community, share ideas, learn something new, form a new hobby, to become more sustainable, and enhance parks, gardens, yards and property helping to make our cities and county an even more beautiful place to live,” organizers state.
Each person who attends the May meeting will have a sharing time to discover each persons gardening and/or arborist interests and a short questionnaire to fill out. Refreshments will be served including a tomato and mozzarella salad with fresh basil, served with fresh bread, coffee, teas and soft drinks.
Each person who attends the May meetings will take home a pot of basil, thyme, rosemary or parsley to start their own herb garden, along with the tomato and Mozzarella salad recipe.
Each month, the take home item will be an herb, plant or tree according to the best planting time per item.
“All gardeners or want-to-be gardeners should attend this interest/start up meeting to help the club become well rooted and grow in the direction of our community interests” organizer state.
