Attack of the Invasive Plants graphicOur next meeting features a special guest speaker and a topic that vexes so many gardeners. Claudette Sims, President of the Master Gardeners of Ontario and area resident, presents “Attack of the Invasive Plants: Identify, Counter-Attack and Eliminate”. Her talk will be followed by the regular meeting of the Crown Point Garden Club. Everyone is welcome to attend one or both– come for the educational first half and stay for the action-packed second half.

The event is on Wednesday October 25 at 7:00 p.m. The location is the L.O.S.T. storefront at 148 Ottawa Street, right across the street from our usual meeting spot. The L.O.S.T. organization has a lovely renovated space that is used for yoga classes and this will be their first time hosting a public event. We are glad they’ve offered their space to us.
