| March 29, 2023

This year’s featured speaker is acclaimed author and speaker, Jennifer Bartley.

The Town and Country Garden Club invites the public to join them on Thursday April 13, at 7 p.m. in the Community Room of Frontier Power, 770 S. Second St. for the annual community gardening event, creating an edible garden.

This year’s featured speaker is acclaimed author and speaker, Jennifer Bartley whose books include “Designing the New Kitchen Garden: An American Potager Handbook” and “The Kitchen Gardener’s Handbook.” Bartley is a landscape architect from Worthington and holds both an undergraduate and a master’s degree in landscape architecture from The Ohio State University.

“The Town and Country Garden Club is pleased to bring Jennifer Bartley to our annual community meeting as she is a passionate advocate for creating edible gardens within our own back yards,” said Club President Cathy Hudson.

This event is free and open to anyone interested in learning about gardening and natural community beautification. Light refreshments will be given courtesy of the garden club.

“We extend a cordial welcome to anyone attending this special community event and invite those who may be interested in joining the club to contact me at 740-294-7304 or any club member about attending any of our regular meetings which are scheduled the second Thursday of each month at various locations,” Hudson said.

Future events include the club’s annual plant sale scheduled for Saturday, May 6, in conjunction with the farmers market located this year at Skip’s Landing on County Road 1A.

The Town and Country Garden Club worked on floral planting and renovation of the fountain structure at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds last year as part of the commitment to beautify and add visual impact with flowers and plants.

The Town and Country Garden organized in 1947 is one of the oldest clubs in the region. The club has been affiliated with the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs for 76 years. The club purpose is preserving, conserving, and artistically sharing nature’s beauty now and for future generations. Membership is open to anyone interested in gardening, landscaping, conservation, and protecting the natural environment.
