Our Next Meeting...

Good Books for Gardeners!

Tuesday, March 21, 2017 7:00 p.m.

Adult Building, First Baptist Church, 3500 Walton Way, Augusta, GA.

What can put a smile on the face of gardeners
on those normally cold, wet days of winter? How about reading both fiction and non-fiction materials that can enlarge the breadth of our gardening knowledge and/or just give us interesting characters and plots in garden locales?

Thanks to AURS member and Master Gardener, Judy Kirkland, our March program will bring us tips on favorite books and other publications that feature characters that grow roses and other local favorite garden plants. From garden mystery series, such as Anthony Eglin’s English Garden Mysteries and Marty Wingate’s Potting Shed Mysteries that feature the same lead character in each series, Judy will proceed to cover garden fiction stand-alone books, inspirational garden books, and horticultural magazines such as Fine Gardening and Horticulture. Be sure not to miss this interesting program to find just the right reading material for your next airline flight, beach trip, or evening by the fire!

And, don’t forget, we will be gathering at O’Charley’s for dinner at 5:00 p.m. prior to the meeting...
