Winter/Spring 2019 Programs
Tuesday, February 19 - Seaside Star Workshop
In this hands-on workshop, our own Alexis Shaw will instruct us on creating a beautiful seaside star. Evoking a natural seaside vibe, it’s built on a natural twig star base, decorated with seashells and finished with a raffia ribbon. The Club will provide the twig star base and raffia ribbon, with members providing their own seashells. Small seashells (about the size of a quarter) work best. Please bring a glue gun; several glue guns will also be available on loan from the instructor. Workshop is limited to 24 participants. Be sure to sign up for this fun workshop!
Tuesday, March 19 - The Ultimate Green Home, Health & Lawn Workshop with Jackson Madnick
Our presenter will discuss his resolve to find innovative ways of saving water and energy, improving surface and ground drinking water quality, and creating healthier organic lawns to compliment flowers and buildings.
He developed an eco-friendly lawn seed mixture that is sold at New England Whole Food Markets, quality Garden Centers and on the Internet. Hear more about how this new seed results in a lawn that needs mowing only once a month, grows 4 foot roots, needs 75% less water, and treats most weeds without chemicals!
