Our first meeting of 2017 will be held at the Parks and Rec Center at 380 Bay Avenue fro, 6:00-8:00 PM on Tuesday, January 24th.
Our new board members look forward to seeing all our old friends as well as new ones. Please pay your dues promptly so we can assemble a directory. Our dues, like everything else, have gone up to $20 individual and $30 family.
Julia Priolo will be speaking. She is a gardener who is creating a homestead with her husband Peter in Center Moriches. Her gardens provide food for her family as well as the wildlife living in her neighborhood. She received her BS in Environmental Science from Stony Brook University and is currently studying for her Masters degree there. Julia is an ecologist at an environmental consulting firm where she works on various restoration projects.
Julia’s program will be all about the wonderful world of seeds. Julia will explain the importance of seed diversity and how to save your own garden seeds to re-grow again. She will also introduce some seed companies that she uses to purchase organic and heirloom seed varieties.
We are looking for a volunteer to maintain our website and FaceBook page. Let us know if you are interested.
Thanks, and Happy New Year to all, Karen, Mary Ann, Carol, Pat, Sandra, and Jo.
