The traveling gardener
There will be all sorts of events coming up that appeal to the gardener. For instance, organic gardener and teacher Linda Turner of Bozrah, CT, has scheduled a trip to the NY Botanical Garden in mid April. I found the link to her site "Plantasia," at Nancy DeBrule's Natureworks email update.
First Tour of 2009!
Looks like the first tour will be in late April to the New York Botanical Garden. I'm looking at Saturday, April 18, so as soon as the bus is confirmed, I'll have the sign up sheet online and you can register. New York is about 3 weeks ahead of us as far as temperature etc, so there will be plenty of blooming bulbs, and maybe cherries and dogwood and spring blooming perennials. There's always the awesome exhibits in the conservatory if it's a little chilly out and the gift shop is great. They have a wonderful restaurant there, too. Other tours in process are to the Wildflower Society's Garden in the Woods and maybe their new education center at Nasami Farm, Tower Hill Botanic, and possibly one in New York State (that one may be an overnight!) If there is interest in some local spots, I will be planning some casual group events at Connecticut College and Harkness.

This could be a lovely way to spend an April Saturday!
