Town and Country Garden Club hosts regional meeting

| October 21, 2016

COSHOCTON – Garden enthusiasts in the area gathered together for the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs (OAGC) Regional meeting on Oct. 19 at Canal Lewisville United Methodist Church.

Town and Country Garden Club, which is part of region eight that currently includes five garden clubs and one junior garden club, hosted the meeting.

Sandy McCullough, region eight director and a member of the Town and Country Garden Club, said regional meetings are held in the fall and spring and help the state organization pass on information to local clubs.

“The meetings are good learning experiences and we have great speakers,” McCullough said.

The Oct. 19 meeting included presentations from Mary and Ron Myers on buying directly from the farm and from Tammi Rogers on worm composting. There also was a silent auction and a flower show that focused on the theme “A Trip Through Ohio Parks.”

“We don’t always have the flower show, but when we do it’s just for fun and a way to learn how to do something,” McCullough said.

One of the judges of the show was Jan Stein from Reynoldsburg.

“The show was great,” she said. “There were good designs and beautiful flowers.”

The clubs also had a chance to talk about community service projects and McCullough was able to share a little bit about Coshocton’s junior garden club.

“It’s a lot of fun working with the children,” she said. “They are so eager to learn.”

McCullough encouraged other counties to start junior garden clubs and said there is still room for new members in the Town and Country Garden Club. Anyone wanting more information on the local garden club is welcome to call her at 740-502-2077.
