Our next meeting will take place on February 11, 2015 at the
Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library ( National Heritage Museum). Program is preceded by refreshments at 9:30 am and a Club Business Meeting at 10 am


Please note that due to a conflict, the January and February programs have been switched:

January 14, Nancy Hubert will talk about "The Uncommon Potato"

February 11, Russ Cohen will talk about "Edible Wild Plants and Mushrooms of New England"

Russ has just completed his 40th year of teaching courses about wild edibles. This past year, he led over three dozen programs for over two dozen different organizations.  These foraging programs were held at various outdoor locations throughout New England, ranging from evening walks in the city and suburbs, to explorations in the mountains and along the seacoast. Russ' foraging book, Wild Plants I Have Known...and Eaten, came out in June of 2004, and is now in its fifth printing.

Hope to see you there!

What a fabulous display of talent at September’s Art-A-Blooming. Once again over 30 LFGC floral designers paired up with artists from the Lexington Arts & Craft Society to create interpretive floral designs. Thank you to all the club members who donated their time and talents to support this popular biennial event.
