February 8, 2023 Hybrid Meeting – High Yield Gardening

Learn to make the most of your garden space! We’ll cover intensive gardening methods like succession planting, season extension, relay planting, and vertical gardening. You’ll leave with ideas on how to grow more food in whatever space and time you have, while taking good care of your soil and the ecosystem.

As Engagement Manager for the Trustees Boston Community Gardens, Michelle de Lima teaches in-person and online gardening programs for adults of varying experience levels on a range of topics. She has been farming and gardening in New England since 2007. Michelle loves to grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers from seed to harvest, and to use them in preserves, ferments, and medicines of all kinds! She’s always grateful for an opportunity to talk about plants with other gardeners.

All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. 7-9pm.

Meetings are held the at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available for a small fee, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.

January 11, 2023 Hybrid Meeting – Annual Meeting

This January the SGC is going to hold its annual meeting in person and on-line.  Known as hybrid-Zoom, those of you who are ready to risk the perils of meeting in person are invited to come to the Senior Room at the TAB building on January 11 at 7:00 pm. And those of you who prefer the perils of your own homes, log in to attend virtually on the same date and time. Past annual meetings were an opportunity to celebrate together the club’s activities and achievements of the prior year. Somewhat in keeping with that, this year we’re looking back three years to 2020 – and celebrating our successes surviving and thriving despite COVID.  There won’t be a raffle or a pot luck dinner. But be prepared to be entertained: Test your garden knowledge in a team trivia match, learn why gardening is better than sex, and when houseplant appreciation day is celebrated. And most importantly, come support the SGC in this evening’s experiment towards getting back closer to “normal.”
