On March 14, 2021 we had our meeting at Trudy's. Our speaker was Ginger Piper. She told us all about Mason Bees and composting with red wiggler worms. She had an example of a cute and easy to clean Mason Bee house and a worm composting bin.

For our December meeting we did something a little different. We met on Sunday afternoon. The weather was warmer and we had more daylight. We met at Trudy's and created Christmas centerpieces and had a wonderful lunch catered by Panera.

For our November meeting, we met at Trudy's. Since it gets dark so early, we met from 4 - 6. The gazebo was a great place to set up and get to work. We made small arrangements for the residents of Manor Care Nursing Home. We brought flowers and greens from our yards and also used flowers that were donated from Trader Joe's. We made a total of 59 arrangements! Robin delivered them to Manor Care the next day, they were very appreciative.

Eagle Scout Pollinator Garden
We were approached by a young man who is planning to plant a pollinator garden in Reston for his Eagle Scout Project. The garden is to be approximately 1650 square feet and will have 700 plants.
We agreed to donate 15 blue lobelia and 48 purple cone flowers for the garden. Most of the plants came from the yard of Robin W.
Many thanks to Theresa, Olga, Donna and Robin for digging and potting up the plants. The scout's father picked up the potted plants and the garden was to be planted on October 10. The picture shows just a few of the plants that we donated.
