June events

A busy, busy spring for gardeners and gesneriad growers!  (Although the current weather has us in the middle of summer....)

Where can you find us this month?  On Saturday June 4, 2011, we'll be at the Garden Social organized and hosted by Behnke Nurseries at their Beltsville location.  For details, see Behnke's website.   (By the way, this is where we'll be having our Show and Sale in September.)

The following Saturday, June 11, 2011, we will be having our annual picnic at the Sweetgum picnic area in Greenbelt Park, Maryland. As always, everyone is welcome and there will be a plant raffle.  More details will be in the June newsletter.
