Proven Winners

 

Did you ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes in the flowering annuals, perennials and shrubs business? Our guest speaker will be Sandy Wentworth, a representative from Proven Winners, providing more beautiful gardens through education and service to gardeners everywhere. She will tell us about the latest trends in garden plants as well as proven winners!!

"from our inception in 1992, Proven Winners has made this same commitment to sustainable production practices in every one of our facilities in order to provide plants that are not only better for gardeners, but that are ultimately better for the environment too."

 

There will be a $5.00 fee for non-NGS members. Refreshments will be served.

NGS Volunteers Honored

1/18/2018

The NGS members who gave of their time in 2017 were honored at a dinner in January. Without their help we would not be able to care for our gardens in the parks, offer educational programs or host fund-raisers. Their work is greatly appreciated. Eva Mannaberg received a house plant to honor her service as NGS Board Chairman.

Gardening

Coming Events

is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.
