The Pine Island Garden Club is excited to welcome Jenny Evans as its speaker for the March 21 meeting.
Evans has always enjoyed teaching people about the natural world and helping them make the connection between plants, people, and wildlife. She came to the horticultural world in a roundabout way, with undergraduate training in biology and theatre (costume design) and a graduate degree in public garden management. Her professional experience has ranged from leading school groups as an environmental educator in Washington state, the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, to working and volunteering in several botanical gardens around the country. Since 2005, she has been the manager of Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation's Native Plant Nursery.
Evans presentation will help make the connection between your garden and the environment.
Monthly Garden Club meetings are held the third Thursday of each month at the Fishers of Men Evangelical Lutheran Church, 10360 Stringfellow Road, and begin at 9 a.m., with coffee and refreshments followed by the guest speaker's presentation and finishing up with a brief member's business meeting.
Club meetings are free and open to everyone. If you are interested in attending a meeting or becoming a member (annual dues are $20), please call Kathie Reiter, Membership Chairman, at 283-3176.
