It’s finally here! What everyone has been missing and is anxious to get back to! Propagation will officially start on Saturday, September 14th, in preparation for our 2020 annual Plant Sale. We will be meeting every Saturday from 10:00 until noon at the Wolfe Ranch through mid November, when we take a break for the Holidays until mid January. We always have fun socializing, propagating, learning, and snacking on the goodies that members bring to share. We hope to see all members, whenever you can, on Saturday mornings helping with preparing for the annual sale.
The success of any club or organization is dependent on the help and participation of all members in furtherance of the purpose of the organization. There is a Board of Directors and different Chairpersons who work to further the purpose and goals of the club, oversee the legal requirements, maintain a budget, file annual legal documents, etc. Without these individuals doing these important jobs for the club, there would be no monthly programs, no field trips, no Plant Sale to fund our goals, etc., and consequently No Club! Each year at this time we look for new people to take over these Board and/or Chairpersons for the various positions. It is necessary to replace positions due to end of terms, members decision that they can no longer serve due to other commitments, health, moving elsewhere, or taking a different position with the club, etc. We would like people to step up and volunteer to help with filling positions and give it serious consideration when one of the Board or Chairpersons contacts you to take on a position. We need everyone’s help. If you have any questions about responsibilities of a position please contact me.
All work days will be at the Wolfe Ranch:
September 14, Saturday 10:00am to Noon: Refresher class on care and sharpening of your garden tools and clean up of the propagation site and containers for our starts. (Rumor has it there will be snacks.)
September 21st, Saturday 10:00am to Noon: Hands on instructions on asexual propagation from cuttings of plants; bring your small snips or small pruners, gloves and excitement to learn. Everyone will have a great time. Cuttings will be provided this week, but we will have you bring some from your gardens the following weeks (stay tuned for more on the types of plants we are looking for).
Propagation will be on going every Saturday this year until late November or early December based on weather. We will start up again in late January, date TBD based on weather, and will continue up to Sale Day - May 9, 2020.

September 23, monthly meeting
Speaker: Leslie Servin
Topic: Public Gardens of the Western U.S. and How to Incorporate Ideas into Your Home Yard
Having lived in the same home in Brentwood for 56 years, being a graduate of Liberty High School, and joining D.I.G. in 1999, Leslie Servin has strong roots in Brentwood. She also has a long established interest in gardens and gardening, which comes naturally through her family history. Leslie is a member of the National Dahlia Society, the American Camellia Society, and the International Camellia Society. Whenever she travels, Leslie tells me, she is “always trying to find a garden along the way.” In her presentation on September 23, she will share some of the gardens she has seen in her travels and talk about how they sparked ideas for her own garden and, by extension, the many ways we can incorporate new inspirations and methods into our own home yards.
