The Idyllwild Garden Club invites the public to its 2015 kick-off meeting at noon Tuesday, March 3, at the lower level of the Idyllwild Community Presbyterian Church.

Jackie Lasater and Ben White will give a presentation on soil and preparing soil for planting, so anyone with even a passing interest in gardening might find it fascinating. This is IGC’s March Soup-er where board members furnish all the dishes: soups, stews, breads and desserts. Attendees are asked to arrive by or before noon as seating is limited.
