The newest garden club in the Valley Lode District Garden Club is now official, the Escalon-Farmington Community Garden Club. At the March meeting held in the Escalon Public Library, the new officers were installed by Pam Fish, current Valley Lode District Director, and Judy Scheppmann, past Valley Lode District Director.

This club has been the culmination of a plan and determination by Scheppmann.

“There has been a great deal of enthusiasm by those attending the three meetings to date,” Scheppmann noted.

Because this is a joint organization between Escalon and Farmington the next meeting is to be held in Farmington on Thursday, April 5 at 1 p.m. The location is the Farmington United Methodist Church Conference Room at 25626 E. Elm St., Farmington. Meetings will rotate between the church in Farmington and the Escalon Library on Second Street.

There will be refreshments and a guest speaker at the April 5 meeting. The new club has several opportunities for persons who have a passion for gardening and learning. If you have wanted to learn about growing native plants, or grafting, starting plants from seeds, welcoming birds, bees and beneficials to your garden, planning tours to gardens, nurseries, and arboretums then this is the place for you.

For more information, call Scheppmann at 209-886-1139.
