Dear Garden Club Members,
As the fall season approaches and we resume our monthly meetings, I am thrilled to report an action-packed agenda has been created for the year ahead. Many activities are in the works, including exciting field trips, informative speakers, fall and spring plant and craft sales, a spring garden tour, and an ice cream social! It’s been a busy summer for your board members and committee chairs preparing for these events.
Our theme this year is “Growing Roots to Enrich our Community”. We grow roots in our community with each scholarship and grant we give, each garden we tend, and every meeting or event we conduct . . . roots that grow to enrich our little town of Ramona.
I encourage each of you to “grow roots” by giving your time and talents to activities our club supports. Your participation, small or large, is crucial to keeping our organization strong and successful.
I’m looking forward to the great year ahead and working with all of you.

"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
