Meetings and Activities

Regular meetings consist of a business meeting and a program, either with a speaker or an activities leader.

From October through May, meetings are usually held the third Friday of the month. (The exception is December when we meet on the second Friday.) We meet at the Left Hand Grange No. 9, in Niwot. Meetings are from 1-3 PM, unless otherwise noted. There is no January meeting.

Trying a new meeting format this year, the first half hour will be for refreshments while we meet and catch up with fellow members. Scheduled speakers or the activity of the day will begin at 1:30. These are planned for an hour. The final half hour will be for conducting our business portion of the meeting.

In the event of meeting cancellation due to snow or other last minute reasons, the members will be  notified as soon as possible by email. This the same email to which you want to have your monthly newsletter sent. So remember to keep your email address up to date with the secretary/membership person!

Our June, July, August, and September meetings, are tours of members' gardens or other places of horticultural interest, such as greenhouses, nurseries, and arboretums. These summer meetings usually start at 10 am and end about 1 pm.

Programs discuss topics such as cultivation of flowers, trees, and shrubs, attracting birds and pollinators to the garden, conservation of water, uses of herbs, and photography in the garden, etc. Occasionally, programs may be devoted to garden-related craft projects.

A spring luncheon in May and a Holiday Tea in December (both at the Niwot Grange) bring members together to celebrate gardening friendships.
