GARDEN CLUB ACTIVITIES HAVE RESUMED!
Covid has changed the way that we meet but has not dampened our enthusiasm. Following a survey sent out to all members in early Fall, we were delighted to resume our fall programs with modifications that met public health recommendations as well as our commitment to the health and safety of our members. While we were not able to hold our annual Plant Sale, we had a Spring Plant Swap, a Fall Plant Swap, and garden tours in June and July of amazing local gardens.
We are now holding our regular meetings and programs via a live-streamed platform which are also recorded to watch at any time. We will resume in-person meetings as the situation with Covid improves in accordance with public health guidelines. Meanwhile, we will continue to provide programs of interest and resume more fabulous activities when we can safely do so.
We wish good health and safety for all our members, our families, friends and neighbors during this difficult time.

Our Educational Programs begin promptly at the time listed below, and are usually held at 6:45 PM on the first Monday of the month (except for September), usually run about 45 minutes and are followed by a general membership meeting. The programs are announced in local papers and on social media and are open to the public.
We meet in the Fellowship Hall at the back of the South Woodstock Baptist Church, 23 Roseland Park Road, South Woodstock, CT.
