March Meetings

WGC Board Meeting
 March 2, 2023 , 9:30 AM Abby Moncrief’s home- 210 Sunset Drive

WGC General Meetings

March 9, 2023

Morning Meeting, 10:00AM.  Business meeting followed by a lecture on perennials.
Speaker:  Sandra McDougle
Sandy McDougle is Owner/Nursery Guru of Sandy’s Plants, a family-owned perennial wholesale and retail nursery that has been in operation since 1979 at 8011 Bell Creek Road in Mechanicsville.  Over 2000 types of perennials are grown in containers outdoors so they are hardened off. The nursery proves perennials to garden centers and landscaping firms throughout the mid-Atlantic region and many of the perennials, herbs, vines, grasses and groundcovers are uncommon or unusual. The nursery encompasses over 25 acres and constantly is expanding. Sandy will talk about how to grow and maintain various perennials. She will be bringing a selection of plants to sell.  She cannot take credit cards and has asked for checks and cash only, with the closer to exact cash the better since she will not have much change. The plants are gallon-sized and cost between 9 and 13 dollars. The selection will consist of what looks better that day, so no pre-orders cannot be made.

March 23, 9:30 AM

WGC has been asked to provide 30 corsages and 30 boutonnieres for a RAIN prom. Club members made corsages and boutonnieres for the prom, pre-Covid, and this is an opportunity to be involved again in supporting this worthy organization. RAIN (Richmond Autism Integration Network) serves children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other related developmental disabilities. We will be meeting on Thursday, March 23 at 9:30 at the church (Tuckahoe Presbyterian Church, 7000 Park Ave.) to make these. The process is very simple. The corsages are constructed with one carnation backed by a piece of fern and they have a small bow; the boutonnieres are the same without the bow. They don’t require any particular skill. Directions will be provided.
