Check out our 2015-2016 Program schedule.
All Club Program meetings are open to the community, unless indicated otherwise.
Our September guest speaker, Hannah Todd, gave us her expert advice on how to care for succulents. Hannah is co-owner of Brick House Succulents.
“Succulent plants are desert and tropical plants that are slow growing, long lived and require little care.”
Her recommended Succulent References were written by author Debra Lee Baldwin: “Designing with Succulents”, “Succulents Simplified”, “Succulent Container Gardens”.

Downeast Designers Guild
Formed in 2015 through the sponsorship of the Ellsworth Garden Club, the Downeast Designers is an informal group of people interested in exploring various floral design styles through:
♦ hands-on design workshops and programs;
♦ study and review of key publications and resources such as the National Garden Clubs Handbook for Flower Shows; and
♦ fostering more formal venues for the exhibition of designs such as flower shows.
Participation in the group is open to anyone interested in design, regardless of any garden club affiliation.
The group meets the first Wednesday morning of the month, every month during the summer and every other month in colder months. For more information, contact Mary Blackstone at 667-8878.
