On Oct. 3, the Idyllwild Garden Club (IGC) installed and introduced its new board and chairs.
The club also announced its record-breaking 116 members due the leadership of Wendy Read, and the hard work of Julie Roy and her membership team.
October event
The IGC will have a free public event at the library from 1-4 p.m. on Oct. 19. Discover Mt. Gardening will have three speakers: Bob Greenamyer of the Community Garden Project from 1-2 p.m., Bruce Watts, who will do a presentation on wildflowers in a post-fire environment, from 2-3 p.m., and Gary Parton, who will speak on the history, care, and feeding of lilacs from 3-4 p.m.
There will also be a sales table with plants, bulbs, how-to books, plus free brochures, and much more. This is a great opportunity, for residents who are unable to attend the club’s Tuesday meetings, to get information.
