Rock Spring Garden Club is back from summer break with a great line up of programs for our 20/21 club year.  We are kicking off September with our first virtual general meeting on Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 10:00 a.m., followed by a wonderful program.  For those interested in membership and would like to join us on the ZOOM call, please send us an email at rockspringgardenclub@gmail.com  Prospective new members are always welcome!

We hope to begin our in-person general meetings in January, 2021 with great programs in Design, Botanical Arts, and Horticulture plus a field trip.

And throughout the months our dedicated Civic Development and Conservation Committee along with other club members can be found maintaining our gardens at Rock Spring Park on Little Falls Road in Arlington.

Our September speaker at our first virtual Zoom meeting is a good friend of Rock Spring Garden Club. Kathy Jentz is Editor, Publisher and Founder of Washington Gardener Magazine. Kathy is a life-long gardener from a family of farmers and dedicated gardeners. Currently, she is President of the Silver Spring Garden Club and on the board of several other clubs and organizations. You can read Kathy’s work in the Washington Examiner and Washington Woman in addition to regular guest spots on Channel 9, Channel 4 and WAMU radio.

September PROGRAM: New Plant Development & Evaluation – Do you wonder where all those new plants come from and want to know what is hitting the garden center next? We’ll cover hybridization, cultivar selection, (including native plants & nativars), commercial operation, plant specialist, environmental suitability, test gardens. Plus, plenty of exciting new introductions to shsre that are coming soon to your garden.
