Programs and Field Trips

Our club provides education, resources, and national networking opportunities for our members. The Program committee works with the President to secure speakers that relate to our annual theme and that promote the love of gardening, floral design, civic andenvironmental responsibility. In addition, the Program committee schedules field trips to advance members' knowledge of gardening and conservation techniques throughout the area. 

The programs usually begin at about 1:00pm, after the BRGC General Meeting.

June 12, 2024 Annual Meeting 

“Blooms Through the Season” is a fast paced, exciting talk that is like speed dating for perennials. John Fromer, Maine Master Gardener Volunteer, and his wife Kathy have grown over 140 perennials along the shore at Islesboro and on their flower and vegetable farm in Appleton, ME.  Fromer will talk about each perennial for 30-45 seconds with tips based on personal experience for approximately 90 perennials. The perennials are sorted by color and presented from spring to fall.

 

Fromer is the Program Director at Merryspring Nature Center, presents garden talks and workshops there and teaches gardening and the MidCoast School of Technology.  He also teaches the vegetable class at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.
