Our speaker is CA Hiscock from the Dallas Master Gardeners. She will be talking about getting your soil ready for spring planting. The meeting will last from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. There will be light refreshments served.
The board was looking at the calendar at our last meeting. Based on the current mild winter weather and the fact that Dallas Blooms starts March 1st, we thought it would be practical to visit the Dallas Arboretum the week before Dallas Blooms.
It is expensive to visit the Dallas Arboretum so we have some money saving options. A number of members have Dallas Arboretum memberships that allow them to bring guests.
Also, if you live in the city of Dallas, you can get free tickets at any city of Dallas Recreation Center up to 4 tickets. Indicate on the Evite if you need tickets.
