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).
The latest edition of the Chippewa Garden Club newsletter is available for download from the Latest News page.
March 23 – Membership Meeting, 7:00 PM, via Zoom.
One of our members, Jo Ann Bartsch, will be giving a presentation on phenology. The title is: “Phenology – Nature’s Calendar”.
Phenology is the study of cyclical natural events that happen in response to seasonal and climate changes in the environment. Using these observations, scientists can develop a yearly calendar of when certain events will occur, just by tracking temperature. Jo Ann will explain the science and encourage you to become more observant about what’s going on in your yard as spring gets closer and closer.
