Program: “When Good Gardens Go Bad”, by Judy Barrett

Judy Barrett is a long time organic gardener who writes for various regional and national gardening publications.  She was the founding Editor and publisher of HOMEGROWN, Good Senses Organic Living, for Texas for 12 years.  She also has hosted the public television series, The New Garden.

Judy has authored several gardening books including: How To Become An Organic Gardener in 7 Easy Steps, What Can I Do With My Herbs?, What Makes Heirloom Plants So Great?, Recipes From and For the Garden, and Easy Edibles To Grow and Enjoy Fresh Food.

Judy writes and talks about her own personal gardening experiences with the many organic and natural gardening practices she has “tested” in her own landscape and gardens in Taylor, TX.  She will discuss common garden problems and practices to correct problems without using toxic chemicals and without personal stress.  She proclaims that gardening can be a relaxing experience, as it should be.  If interested, she will sign copies of her books.

Mark your calendar…come on out and learn Judy’s secrets.

NEW MEMBERS ~ Essential By-Product of Ways & Means

For about 26 years, we have had a viable Ways & Means Program in which we have established a mutually beneficial partnership with local nurseries and horticultural suppliers.  We do a seminar in their nursery, or just assist “rose customers”, in an informal one-on-one question and answer interaction.  In return, the business provides a substantial donation to our Rose Society.  Ways & Means is the backbone of our financial well-being.

Equally important, however, is the recruiting of new members through the exposure provided by the Ways & Means projects.  Regrettably, each year we find it necessary to drop about 25-30 members who elect not to pay their membership dues.  This year, directly from our Ways & Means projects, we have added 41 new members to our roll.  Being actively involved with  our partners is profitable, in more ways than one.
