"It's that time of year when the world falls in love, every song you hear seems to say..."


Yep, it's that time again for joyous gatherings and hearty celebrations with family and friends. 

Your garden club does the same and this year our past president from 2012 and new vice president for 2015, Paula Barber is opening her home to us for our holiday party Sunday, December 7th at 2pm.  Your invitation via email should be sent out soon with further information and a map link, so check your inbox. 

Mark your calenders and hope to see you then.

If you are not sure yet, or if your schedule opens up at the last minute, please still join us. We want all our members to celebrate the season with us.

Besides the fun of socializing with all our gardening friends we also each bring a side dish (yummy)

OR dessert (yum!) and if you would like to join in the gift exchange,

wrap up a garden theme gift under $15. We do that fun exchange where you can take someone else’s gift or choose a new one to open.

The club provides the Turkey and Ice Tea; if you prefer some other beverage please feel free to bring it along.

This is also the time of year we take recommendations for our annual club donation. 

If you know of any organization that would benefit from our donations that promotes

organic gardening, eco or sustainable living please bring that information along

or email it to one of the board members. 

We will also have the forms to renew your membership to get a head start on the New Year.

Have a Very Happy Holiday Season!

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray an 8"x8" square baking dish with your choice of a non-stick spray


2 8 oz packages of Neufchatel cheese or Philadelphia cream cheese

One small red bell pepper

1 14oz can of Artichoke hearts

1/2 cup of mayo

Salt and pepper to taste.


Let cheese sit out to soften.

Dice the red bell pepper.

Drain and chop the artichoke hearts.

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly.

Place mixture into the 8"x8" dish.
