           President’s Message Fall 2019

 Hard to believe we are taking our leave of summer and heading into fall. But autumn brings its own joy. I have memories of a fresh start at school with brand new notebooks, sharpened pencils and great anticipation for what was to come. Now, as then,  we look forward to the changing colors of the trees, crisp tart apples, and those surprising fall bloomers like crocus and colchicums. We can plant cool season annuals for spring bloom which are a welcome for early arriving pollinators. We can plan our next year’s gardens, keeping in mind the theme of “Planting Maryland for Beauty and Wildlife”.  Our President’s Project continues, supporting Cylburn Arboretum’s Storm Water Management capital project and in educating the public about these methods.

Donations may be sent to the office payable to FGCMD with Cylburn Capital Project in the memo.  And we all are personally conserving water drop by drop.
