Butterfly Flutterby - Oct 20

Spring Finale

At the spring luncheon Grapevine Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Mitchell presented to GGC President Candace Kyler the prestigious Texas Volunteer Service Club Award. Over 8,000 volunteer hours were logged by GGC members. 

The 2017-2018 GGC calendar winds down. 

Flowercade and the GGC plant sale have recently concluded. Both were great successes. Several awards were garnered by GGC members during Flowercade. The plant sale was greeted by cold winds. Nevertheless, gardeners came out and selected quality plants. 

The District II and 90th TGC, Inc. 2018 Spring Conventions have concluded. Several  awards were presented to GGC. Details to follow.  

The 2018 Spring issue of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension newsletter published an article by County Extension Agent Laura Miller detailing the efforts led by GGC member Pam Braak to document research into potential Rose Rosette resistant varieties.

We can be proud of our commitment to carry out the GGC mission statement: "...to promote interest in horticulture, landscape and floral design; to further the protection and conservation of wildflowers and trees; to stimulate appreciation and protection of wildlife; to promote city and highway beautification; to actively suport environmental concerns; ad to encourage education in all these objectives." 


Gearing up for the 2018-2019 Gardening Season

Sept - Nov 2018 Programs

General Meetings

The September 25th program, Blooms and Beyond: Year-Round Color in the Garden. Does your garden seem to have a boring downtime when it is just not pretty? Toni Moorehead, a longstanding member of our club, will be speaking to us this month on the topic, Blooms and Beyond: Year-Round Color for Your Garden. Toni, a Tarrant County Master Gardener and Texas Certified Landscape Professional, has her own landscaping business, and her expertise is well known. Go browse her blog, http://signaturegardens.blogspot.com, and check out her Signature Gardens Facebook page for a world of information about how to garden beautifully in our area.

The October 30th program, Poisonous Plants. We all know that Socrates was poisoned by Hemlock, but did you know that Hemlock grows in Texas? Since the plant resembles wild carrots or parsnips, it has been responsible for deaths of humans harvesting and consuming the roots. Beautiful but poisonous plants are often used as garden ornamentals, potted plants, and even florist flowers. So BEWARE! Barney Lipscomb from the Botanical Research Institute of Texas will share his vast knowledge of poisonous plants—especially appropriate at this frightening time of year! 

The November 27th program. Creating Public Gardens. Most agree that a stroll through a public garden is good for the soul. But how many of us imagine the planning involved in making gardens so satisfying and relaxing? Our speaker, Matt Nicolette, has been creating meaningful and memorable landscapes as a leader in the Public Garden Team at Studio Outside since 2013. We will learn the inspiring process Matt uses to design public landscapes that provide the ultimate in respite and enjoyment.
