The Downtown Development Authority held a garden club interest meeting in Homer on the first Saturday in May. The next meeting is planned for this coming Saturday.
“The meeting was a huge success,” Janice Tennent, DDA chair said. “We were expecting five maybe ten people who might have an interested but much to our delight twenty-one men and women attended.”
Attendance included beginner gardeners to master gardeners.
“We had a great time of getting to know each other, gleaning crucial tips and talking about our interests for ourselves and our community,” said Tennent. “Also, equally enjoyed was the tomato mozzarella salad, free herb of choice and the opportunity to buy local. Catherine Shubert’s greenhouse on Thompson is overflowing and offered beautiful tomato plants for only one dollar.”
A wide range of the clubs interests included the start up of Homer’s Farmers Market on the square each Saturday morning, offering home grown vegetables and plants to sell or swap, helping to install a community garden at the senior center, enhancing areas around town including endeavors of planting crepe myrtles on 441 and 164 complete with a sign to “Visit Homer” and helping to keep Homer’s parks and streets manicured and clean.
The Homer Garden Club will meet the first Saturday each month at 10 a.m.
