October Meeting

We are very excited to have Amy Ziffer speaking at our October 13th meeting. We are joining with the Upstate NY Hosta Society to host the event. The meeting will begin at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices on Martin Rd. in Voorheesville. Join us on Saturday, October 13th, to hear a great talk on how to make your shade gardens better. Bring a friend and a dish to share.

For twenty years Amy has been experimenting to find the best shade-tolerant plants for the Northeast. Shade Revealed, a talk abundantly illustrated with beautiful photography, focuses on what makes some shade plants better performers than others. She presents a clear basis for shade garden design with the goal of long-term success based on appropriate plant selection, and she showcases plants with exceptional and unusual qualities that can help shade gardeners achieve a more satisfying shade garden with a long season of bloom.
