make sure you RSVP! and hope to see you there!
Daniel MacDonald is the speaker for May meeting at the MountainView Community Church. He will be discussing proteas and other Australian/ South African plants, and reveal how he found his way from Canada to Ramona. His farm is situated on the NW slope of Mt. Woodson and has a frost-free microclimate, excellent for growing these plants for the cut flower trade. Come to the meeting and support our garden club member, Daniel MacDonald. He will also bring a small selection of plants for sale.

Dear Ramona Garden Club Members,
Joyfully, we announce the great success of our
Saturday, April 30, 2022, RGC Garden Tour, truly a team
effort led by Chairperson Jane Vidal! THANK YOU ALL!!!
Happily, the weather cooperated, ticket holders
reported their delight with the four gardens and some
requested membership information (membership forms
were available at each site)!
Additionally, the Plant & Craft Sale was very popular
and profitable! Thank you, to Diane Schafer and Carol
Wilson for overseeing this category, and to Kathy
Marshall and Jennifer DeSimone for cashiering!
Since this was our first garden tour, post the
pandemic shutdown over two years, ago, we are pleased
for the successful return of our major Ramona Garden
Club fundraising event!!!
Gratefully, Georgie Suitor

"People are turning to their gardens not to consume but to actively create, not to escape from reality but to observe it closely. In doing this they experience the connectedness of creation and the profoundest sources of being. That the world we live in and the activity of making it are one seamless whole is something that we may occasionally glimpse. In the garden, we know."
by Carol Williams, Bringing a Garden to Life, 1998.
