Borrow garden books conveniently

By Denise Stewart

The Scripps-Mesa Garden Club has filled a book box with informative materials at Anderson Nursery in Poway. Anyone is free to borrow a text to learn more about growing things. They are just asked to return what they borrowed to the box when they have filled their need for information. Find the box right near the parking lot when you head into the garden supply store.

On March 26 at 6 p.m. in the library Community Room, the Scripps-Mesa Garden Club will be learning about Native California Gardens from speaker Sharon Colayco. She will also suggest ways to support the return of butterflies to our property.

A short business meeting and a brief social time are part of the monthly event.

As the days warm and lengthen, the Garden Club members will be enjoying local garden tours during the early evening. Those who are interested in the instructive presentations and pleasant botanical experiences are invited to the next meeting. Also, for those who just want to learn more about the local gardening scene, try the inspiring and informative website: scrippsmesagardenclub.com.
