MHGC: Monthly Meeting and More

Dear Mission Hills Garden Club Members and Garden Aficionados,

Please find below the Club’s events and other community and garden related infos:

Wednesday, January 26, 6 pm - 8 pm
Monthly Meeting
Best of the Best: Succulent Container Gardens well known author, Debra Lee Baldwin, will be speaking to members and the public at its monthly meeting in January. She will be discussing her beautiful new book, Succulent Container Gardens, which has just been tagged as one of the ten best garden books of 2010 in several publishing and distribution polls. No stranger to the writing world, she has authored and provided the photographs for several other volumes and articles on gardening with succulents. Her efforts have probably done more to popularize this landscape tool than any one other individual. Books will be available for purchase and she will remain to sign them.

At 4070 Jackdaw St , Mission Hills. Street or parking lot parking at United Church of Christ, Refreshments served, Members free; Guests and public without passes- $10. No reservations necessary (Meredith French, Program Chair)
