The Horticulture Study Group consists of members who are interested
gardening.' Everyone is welcome whether a new gardener
or experienced; all that is needed is an interest in gardening. We
meet monthly except December,
July and August at
or at the Acton Memorial Library.
At the January meeting, we plan
our next year's programs.
Members lead the programs after having studied a gardening topic and then present a talk or demonstration to the group. Included in the year's programs may be a hands-on workshop or demonstration
a topic presented has handouts, they are sent electronically to all who have expressed an interest in the horticulture programs.
The Floral Design Study Group, an informal group open to all members, meets three times a year. The design workshops are planned to interest participants who are novices as well as seasoned arrangers. Projects are selected to familiarize the designers with a variety of design types common in standard flower shows. Goals include learning the principles and elements of design as well as the mechanics useful in creating different types of arrangements. The 2015-16 series will feature some fun trends and techniques in floral design. The top priority is to “Have Fun with Flowers!”
