Madawaska Valley Gardening Club is “Wild about Bees”

Snow and cold never stopped a gardener from dreaming, especially as the daylight hours will soon begin to lengthen. The MV Gardening Club monthly meetings may have stopped temporarily in 2020 but the Club offers you a chance to learn how to plan a pollinator garden for 2021 at a free Zoom meeting to be held Tuesday Dec.21 at 6 p.m.  Register on the Club’s Facebook page: Facebook/Madawaska Valley Gardening Club. (The same group of plant-loving gardeners and learners formerly known as the Madawaska Valley Horticultural Society.)
