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 until we can meet in person. 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 person or virtually. 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.
This Month, September 2021:
Things are, thankfully, returning somewhat to normal. As of right now, we are planning to meet in person, at our regular location, Brecksville Human Services, on September 28, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. (note the change in time!).
One of our members, Lynne Evans, will conduct a demonstration in Japanese Kokedama (The Poor Man’s Bonsai). Kokedama is the practice of taking the root ball of a plant and suspending it in a mud ball, which is then coated with soft green moss. It is a living planter as well as a distinctive display piece. And it can be entered in a Botanical Arts section of a Flower Show!
