January - March 2018
General Meetings

The Jan 23rd program, "Backyard Habitat for Migratory Birds," presented by Sam Kieschnick, Urban Wildlife biologist for Texas Parks and Wildlife. Sam will teach us the importance of backyard habitats for migratory birds. When food supplies dwindle as winter approaches, birds to our far north must migrate or die. When they arrive in our area, they are exhausted, hungry and must compete with birds that live here year-round. How can we as gardeners ensure that these migratory visitors thrive and not just survive?

The Feb 27th program, "What's NEW?" presented by Keith Formway, National Accounts Manager at J. Berry Nurseries. Trips to local nurseries never fail to inspire. but where do the new offerings come from? How are they developed? Keith has been in the nursery business for over 30 years. J. Berry's innovations include finding, breeding, and testing new plants, and bringing better genetics to the nursery supply chain. Keith will share information about the attributes of these offerings, such as hardiness, colors, disease resistance and why these new plants deserve a place in our home landscapes.

The March 27th program, "Hydroponics: Growing Plants Without Dirt," presented by Max and Jody Wall. Everyone knows that to grow great plants, you need great soil--RIGHT?! Well, apparently that is not always the case. Welcome to the modern victory garden! Max and Jody Wall, the founders of Dallas Urban Farms, will share tips and techniques for gardening successfully without dirt to get abundant yields with minimal labor and no chemicals. Come and enjoy learning about the future of gardening.
