Meeting, August 9

Movie night!
Hot August evenings are perfect movie nights, so let’s watch a film together. Sweet Violets is a documentary by Tobe Carey that explores how violets came to be the rage during the Gilded Age and how, in the years before WWI, the Hudson River town of Rhinebeck, NY became the violet capital of the world. Includes vintage photographs and postcards, rare film footage, 19th-century music and literature, and interviews with historians and commercial growers.

We’ll also discuss our annual Plant Sale. This year it is on September 16th. If you haven’t begun potting up your donations, now’s the time.

All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. 7-9pm. Meetings are held at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.

Save the date!
