Garden Guild

WB Garden Guild’s 2017 Schedule

by Dianne Koehler

We are a friendly group who meets once a month to discuss gardening!  We normally meet every third Saturday of the month at 10:30am for a plant/seed swap and then at 11:00am for the presentation at the Wells Branch Rec. Center, 3000 Shoreline Drive.  All are welcome!

The February topic is All Things Butterfly.  We will discuss the WB Butterfly Garden, what you can do to provide support for butterflies in your own garden and learn more about the Monarch Project.

The March meeting will feature a speaker to address the Best Plants for Spring and Summer Gardening, with an emphasis on vegetables you can grow here.

In April, the Guild will have a Field Trip to Gabriel Valley Farms in Georgetown. Gabriel Valley produces certified organic culinary herbs and vegetable plants.

May is the month for the annual Wells Branch Garden Tour. Join us to see what is growing in your neighborhood. Get inspired by the wonderful gardens hiding behind your neighbor’s fences and learn what those beautiful plants are in the front yard down the street.

In June, we will meet on the second Saturday for a Tomato Tasting. See what WB gardens can produce and talk to the folks that grow these tasty tomatoes.

The July meeting will be about Garden Masonry. Learn how to use stone, mortar and rocks to create and define garden spaces. Hopefully, we will have a hands on project or a demo.

Since August is the month most likely to inspire water conservation, this month we will learn about Xeriscape Gardening and Maintenance.  Learn what plants to use, how to install them and how care for the garden once you have it in place.

September is our month to look back at what we have accomplished. We will discuss what was successful over the last year and make plans for future Garden Guild meetings. Come join us and help strengthen the Garden Guild as a community forum for those of us who love to play in the dirt!

  1. do you need to be a member of WBNA to attend a Garden Guild meeting? Also, what time does the meeting on Feb 5th begin?

    Thank you, Karen

  2. We’re about to move to Wells Branch, and thinking of offering on a house with a tiny back yard that would prohibit much gardening. Do you know what the ordinances are about front yard vegetable gardens? Thank you!
