OUR 2022 PRESIDENT’S NOTES

 C56A8F29 9BA6 4C7B 97D7 2B912CD40854

Well, it's another year and still we're amongst a pandemic, but that never stopped the Greater Dallas Organic Garden Club. Fortunately, we were able to squeeze in our annual field trip and our holiday party while numbers were down. See photos below - a grand time was had by all! We were lucky to have such nice weather for both events and it was fantastic to see club members in-person.

It's time to get our schedule for 2022 in place. The GDOGC Board met this past weekend and we have great plans for you! This month's speaker is a club friend, Heather Rinaldi, who has a wealth of knowledge about worm composting and soil biology. We look forward to her presentation as our January speaker, albeit by Zoom.

We have decided to hold the plant sale in the Fall again this year, as this is the best time for planting. From a fundraising perspective, we had our most successful plant sale EVER this past October. That said, we may do a mini-sale of tomatoes, peppers, and other spring vegetables in March. If you have extra seedlings, we would love to have some contributions. Now is the time to start the seeds indoors. Since we aren't having the big plant sale in April, we will be holding our annual garden tour that month. If you live in the Oak Cliff/Dallas/Lakewood/or Midway Hills area and would like to be on the garden tour, please let a board member know. The Field Trip will likely take place in November. Conversations around destinations are in progress. Your ideas are welcome! Which direction should we go?

The new classroom at North Haven Gardens is ready to go and looks great! We have better acoustics and a better AV set-up. I am really looking forward to the February meeting there (crossing my fingers) in person. If you have any suggestions or ideas for speakers for later in the year, we would love to hear them.
