Re: Re: now plant clubs- Reverse sexism?!

Sorry Zem, Dressing up? Silver?
Locally I only belong to MGs and we meet monthly for workdays to
maintain the Display Gardens. No makeup-jeans -sweatshirt. Although I do
marvel at one MG who always wears white shorts and shoes. Still, you did
mention "obsessed with food" and we are guilty of that. However, ours is
pot luck added to whatever the 2 MG cooks have scrounged up on their
slim budget. No silver, just plastic sporks!

We do have a local garden club called the Conservateers that operates
out of our city's Botanical Conservatory. They do good things I guess,
along with their Tuesday luncheons under glass (while most of the
working class is busy making a living). It's my impression that they are
similar to what you've described. I applied there before I got my ODH,
before I became an MG, but they weren't interested in me.

This year I have been (a not very good) president of our garden club, and
am not sure I will renew my membership.  Seems we have become obsessed
food, silver serving pieces and dressing up.  I have also noticed certain 
groups do not share information with others within the club.  This is NOT 
good.  I much prefer my Master Gardening group where we focus on
