Green Thumb Garden Club

Have you ever wanted to start a garden but didn’t know how to begin?  Do you want to grow your own vegetables on the patio?  Well we’ve got answers for you.  We are happy to announce the Green Thumb Garden Club is ready to bloom!  The Green Thumb Garden Club is a 12-week series of classes on gardening for MMC members.  The classes, which are held on Fridays from February to June, are led by volunteer master gardeners on various topics.  The topics include subjects such as “Small Space Gardening and Raised Beds,” and “Native Plants for Birds and Bees.”  The two goals are to: 1) provide the knowledge a new gardener needs to get started; and, 2) provide interesting topics to keep students coming back in subsequent years.   There is a $10 fee. You must be a member of the Modern Maturity Center to participate.    No gardening experience is required so come join the garden club and watch your garden grow! 
Some of the highlights of the Green Thumb Garden Club are:
  • A special propagation class with Dr. Rose Ogutu from Delaware State University in March
  • Transplanting tomato plants in April
  • Annual tomato plant sale in May
  • Field trip to special location (last year we went to Lavender Fields)
Spaces in the Green Thumb Garden Club sell out fast so be sure to register today at Member
Services.   If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl on 301-332-3715 or email her at cfisher313@aol.com.
