Field & Garden Club
Education, Service, Friendship 

Next Main Club program:

Wednesday, October 11, 7 PM  
Design-Less Gardens 

Dan Jaffe, propagator and stock bed grower at New England Wild Flower

Society will talk about how you can create a low maintenance garden that actively supports the environment and provides beauty all season Instead of using traditional design rules, look to nature for your inspiration: What clues

can you take from your landscape to help you provide the right plant for the

right place? Learn to evaluate sunlight, moisture, soil, and other factors to encourage a successful garden needing minimum watering, fertilizing, and coddling.

Keilty Hall, St. Brigid’s Church, lower level 7pm

Our meetings are free and open to the public so come 

and bring a friend along, too. We look forward to seeing you there!

For a full listing, see Main Club Program page.

How about a discrete task and some fun with friends?  

For those of you who want to work on a traffic island or civic garden, but don’t want a long-term commitment, we have the perfect opportunity! We’ll be scheduling several workdays this summer and fall to clear out public spaces not currently maintained by LFGC and we need your help. Each workday will last 2 to 3 hours and will be scheduled for morning or late afternoon. We’ll provide the refreshments! 

If you feel you have additional time beyond the demands of your current commitments, please consider joining us. If you are interested, we’ll place your name on a list of folks who will be contacted once we set a date. Feel free to forward this e-mail to others who may be interested and may not currently be associated with civic gardening but would like to help. 

Please respond with a brief e-mail to either
