So Long 2020….Hello 2021!
The Chippewa Garden Club found 2020 to be a very trying year! We were unable to do many of our civic projects like Garden Therapy, Arbor Day, and Recess Gardening. There were some bright moments, however, since outdoor gardening was still doable during a pandemic. We gardened with our community gardeners, maintained the Squire Rich Herb Garden, and finished two memorial garden projects in Broadview Heights.
We are anxiously anticipating 2021, although we suspect it will begin with similar restrictions on our activities. With that in mind, Chippewa Garden Club intends to continue our monthly membership meetings via Zoom. They are usually held the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Each business meeting is usually preceded by a presentation, focused on some horticultural or floral design topic. The preliminary schedule is listed here.
If gardening and all that goes along with it appeals to you explore these web pages and join us in the Zoom garden (for now). If you’re interested in joining, you can find our Membership Brochure and Application here.
The latest edition of the Chippewa Garden Club newsletter is available for download from the Latest News page.
Things are, thankfully, returning somewhat to normal. As a Garden Club we usually limit our activities during the summer months — we do have our own gardens to tend to! This year there will be no membership meetings in June or July, but we’ll be back to meeting in August. Hopefully, our August meeting will be in person….stay tuned!
Visit us at our booth during the Brecksville Home Days, July 16, 17, and 18th. We’ll have a kids project, some free seeds, and of course plenty of conversation about growing, designing, and conserving!
