Alpine Garden Club Meeting: “Super Low Maintenance Design” – October 12, 2017

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC – The Alpine Garden Club will meet October 12th at 5:45  p.m. at the Alpine Library. Our speaker Connie Beck who’s topic is “Super low maintenance design” has been a organic gardening instructor and landscape designer for 30 years. Her belief is that one person at a time can make a difference by giving up toxic chemicals and providing the basic necessities for wildlife;  food, water, cover, and a place to raise their young. Key to this is good plant choice and good design to save water, and create sustainable landscapes  in our own gardens.. Connie Beck says, “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

The program is free and all are welcome to attend.  If you have any questions please call 619-659-8707 or email Hilde Hinchcliff HERE
