Mountain Garden Club hosts Paul Parent, noted Horticulturist, Radio Personality, & Public Speaker, who will talk about Putting Your Garden to Bed - Answers to all your gardening questions.
“Good Morning, Gardeners” may be a familiar greeting to many of our members. Paul Parent has hosted the popular Paul Parent Gardening Club for more than 25 years. More than a half million listeners tune in each Sunday to hear his common sense gardening information.  Gardening has become the No. 1 hobby of America. “People are hesitant to ask the most basic gardening questions because they don’t know where to go” and Paul is their answer.  As his website states, “Paul is probably responsible for more successful flower and vegetable beds, lawns and landscape projects, in all New England states, than any other one regional garden authority.” He will share his extensive knowledge with our group, focusing on the timely “putting our gardens to bed” but will also provide ample time for answering individual questions. Held at the Red Fox Grille, 49 Route 16, Jackson, NH.
ADVANCE RESERVATIONS REQUIRED - no later than October 6th
PRICE: $23 members / $25 non-members.  Contact Deborah Bryant (603-447-2376;  deborah.bryant@myfairpoint.net) for reservations.
