Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Do not miss the 91st Annual Meeting at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville! By arriving at 9:00 a.m. to register, you will have time before the meeting – which begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. –  to enjoy coffee or tea while you greet friends and shop from a superb group of vendors.

“Ready, Set…Fine Art and Design!”

From 9:15 – 10:00 a.m.  watch blue ribbon FGCCT designers compete in a LIVE design challenge based on Fine Art works displayed. You’ll witness brilliance, talent and exceptional creativity and then vote for your favorites and “People’s Choice”!

Finished designs will be included in the drawings, as well as lovely gifts from our venders, so be sure to purchase tickets when you arrive.

Guest Speaker, Larry Weaner

At 10:30 a.m. featured speaker, Larry Weaner, renowned landscape architect, lecturer and author of the award-winning, Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change, will take the stage. Mr. Weaner has been creating native landscapes since 1982, combining expertise in horticulture, environmental science and the traditions of garden design. Designs are patterned after naturally occurring plant communities, with species selected for their functions as well as their ornamental qualities, resulting in dynamic, resilient landscapes that thrive with a minimum of care.

Mr. Weaner’s provocative presentation will certainly tie in nicely with our President’s Project Theme, “Out with Invasives – In with Natives.” For more information visit
