RE: was Master Gardeners/ Garden clubs

Christine Petersen   Northport, Long Island, New York     Zone 7

I belong to the Asharoken Garden Club.  It's the local club and has
about 60 members.  It meets during the day, so I usually can only make
the two summer meetings.  I enjoy entering in horticulture, helping to
judge the "little show" and spending time with my neighbors and fellow
gardeners. Just by chance there is a meeting on Veteran's Day, so I'll
get to go as there's no school!  

I've always wanted to go the Master Gardener route, but they meet in the
day too.  It's kind of frustrating!  One of the reasons that I like the
daylily club that I belong to is that they meet on the weekend and most
of their events are in the summer.  It works great for me!

I've met Master Gardeners of both sexes, but my garden club is strictly
female.  When I belonged to an African Violet Club, we had both sexes.
I know that the LI Horticultural society (which I belong to) and the
Gesneriad and Dahlia societies have a lot of men.  I belong to one of
the local arboretums as well.  They seem to have both men and women.  I
don't get to many meetings for these groups as I rehearsal with the
Northport Chorale on the night that they meet.  I donate plants and help
out when I can.

I'm going to be 54, so I won't be retiring any time soon.  It's hard to
think that I have to wait so many years before I can participate in
these great organizations!
