Our next meeting is Thursday, October 27th.
The evening's program, "Pollinator Gardens Using Native Plants", presented by Sandy Truckner will begin at 7:00 pm. The public is welcome to join us.
This year's Plant Sale on Saturday May 7, 2016 was a wonderful success and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
What a great Mayfest plant sale we had this past May! The weather was beautiful and we had such a great time visiting with garden friends and making new ones. Many thanks to the talented Shirley Neill who taught us how to make fairy garden using "found" items and Mr. Kurt Fisher bringing his local honey to sell and teaching us all about bees. Our successful Mayfest Plant Sale would not have been possible without everyone who stopped by to support our club’s annual fundraising efforts. Every year the Club donates the proceeds from the sale to community charities – so the more we make; the more we can donate! We’d also like to thank all of the dedicated Club Members and Nancy and Richard Neel of Sunny Sprouts Greenhouse for all of the hard work it took to put on such a wonderful event! The Club would also like to thank all of our other gardening friends who donated pots and plants and volunteered their time to help us prepare for this one special day! This event would not be possible without each and every one of you and your continued support means the world!
COME GROW WITH US! BEGINNERS WELCOME!!
Dry Ridge Garden Club has been gardening together since 1961. We are a “down-to-earth” club that is small and friendly. We are non-profit, and do one major fundraiser each year. That event is our annual plant sale held on the first Saturday in May. Most of our plants are donated by our members themselves. Other perennials and annual plants are purchased from a local grower. If you don’t have a green thumb, bring baked goods for our bake sale that day! All of our proceeds benefit local charities, such as the Westmoreland County Food Bank, Salvation Army, Christian Laymen, the Blackburn Center, Stockings For Soldiers, a local volunteer fire department, local veterans, and the American Cancer Society.
We like to share our knowledge at our monthly meetings as well as get more information, by having speakers from garden related businesses. Often we welcome a Master Gardener to speak about their experiences, or a particular subject.
Our members are from all walks of life and ages range from mid thirties to over 90. We are friends and we are fun! We meet six times a year on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm. November’s meeting is the third Thursday. We also hold a Christmas dinner and a June dinner, without a meeting, and just for the fun of it!
