You won't want to miss this one - Garland Victory Gardens.
Please join us Sunday, March 24, 2019 when our speaker will be Carol Garrison.
Carol will give us a presentation on her ever expanding Garland Victory Gardens.
2:30pm social time. 3pm meeting start.
A personal pictorial history - with first hand advice for you about front yard gardening in the suburbs or city.
Over the last 5 years, Carol and her husband, Daniel, have converted their St Augustine yard into sustainable and organic Garland Victory Gardens!
Their gardens include vegetables, flowers, chickens, a 250 gallon rain catchment system (with an additional 825 gallons up and flowing this Spring), a 192 sq ft greenhouse, grape vines, blackberry patches, and a 110 gallon pond.
As their gardens grew, Carol and Daniel worked through and overcame coding issues and fostered neighborhood acceptance.
Their Garland Victory Gardens have been featured in the Dallas Morning News and Richardson Living.
Carol is a North Texas Master Naturalist with a passion for conservation. Keeping one foot in the natural sciences and one foot in the medical field, Carol spends 3 days a week as an educator at the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center and then spends 2 days a week as a prosthetist/orthotist.
