Garden club on the go

TIPP CITY — Weather changes and so does the Tipp City Garden Club’s programming. In the early months of each new year, programming is dedicated to education with guest speakers and informative presentations.

During the growing season, the club goes on trips to local garden centers, takes behind-the-scenes tours, and visits notable residential and formal gardens.

On May 7, club members carpooled to the Garden Stone Greenhouse on Alcony-Conover Road for shopping. Members found quality, healthy plants to adorn their yards and were treated to an impromptu talk on tomato plants. Lunch at Loretta’s Country Kitchen, Christiansburg, followed.

On June 4 the club will visit the Gardens Alive! Research Farm for a guided ornamentals tour. A mini mystery trip will include lunch will follow the tour. Members will meet in the parking lot behind the Tipp CVS and depart by carpool at 9:30 a.m. to start the activities.

June’s trip is open to anyone interested in the Tipp City Garden Club.
