We spent a delightful evening with gardening enthusiast Joy Bossi, known for her radio program Joy In The Garden and more recently as author of 2 new garden books. Ron Jones opened our meeting with an update on the relationship between SLMGA and USU Ext Master Gardener program. The two organizations committed to work closely with each other and combine projects so all approved project hours will count toward your Master Gardener hours. Ron will sit on the advisory council for the USU Ext Master Gardener program. We also welcomed a number of new SLMGA members from the last graduated Master Gardener class. Ron encouraged us to adopt the motto: Learn - Grow - Teach.
Joy then entertained us with gardening stories and antics that are included in her book, The Incredible Edible Landscape. Do you plant herbs among your annual flowers? You should, they are both beautiful and delicious! Don't know how to cook with a particular herb? Plant it, try it and you will learn. Joy challenged everyone to plant an edible plant that they have never grown before.
