Year in Review
November 5, 2015
Questions and Thoughts on 2015
It was that time of year again when we got together with fellow APG members to reflect on the successes, disappointments and dilemmas of the past gardening season.  Together we were able to learn, share and also vent our frustrations!

The same as last year, our meeting included pre-written questions to open up the discussions. 

We met at the Spicer House ...and to put us in the mood of the fall season, cider and donuts were served!

Garden Tour of Frankenmuth Mutual Insurance Company with Eugene Kociba

From roof top gardens to living walls. From Degroot spires to Sterling Lindens we had a fabulous tour of the insurance grounds with Eugene, the landscape supervisor. We  learned about so many new plants and maintenance practices (using copper and zinc nails for Dutch Elm disease). We could visit again and again to gain more knowledge. Easily one of our best August outings!
