Malibu Garden Club - May Meeting

You may have heard about the Malibu Garden Club recently in this LA Times story, Malibu Garden Club trowels for new members.

When I read this story, I immediately thought that there might be some ways to use New Media to gain visibility (and hopefully, new members) for the group. I even wrote a blog post about it. (Can New Media Save a Gardening Club?)

I am planning to be at this next meeting both to meet the members and learn more about the group and also because I think I will really enjoy the speaker.

Why don't you join me?

Malibu Garden Club - May Meeting

OUR WILD BEES: Ode to Flight Season

Back by VERY POPULAR DEMAND! If you missed Frances Night last year, you won’t want to miss her talk this year. Frances is a bee expert who will speak about Bees & their relationship with plants, nature and our Gardens, and how to plant a Bee friendly garden.

California is home to a great diversity of native bee species, whose role in pollinating plants is ‘foundational’ to the life of our ecosystem. Sudden declines in honeybee and wild bee populations around the world have set off alarms about the sustainability of wild lands, the reliability of our food crops, and the quality of life. There is new urgency for habitat preservation and more responsible use of pesticides. Learn how we can identify these fascinating and gentle insects, and how we can provide nectar and pollen plants, and nesting materials for them in our home gardens.

Seedlings are up!

Yesterday we saw the first signs of seedlings in our little garden bed. Our fingers are crossed that the squirrels and bugs allow them to continue. They will require some thinning once we can identify the strongest candidates.

Planting and hoping

Joe and I planted a bunch of vegetables in this small garden plot today. We are a bit behind schedule for Los Angeles, but we will take what we can get and enjoy it.

Garden Classes at Green Arrow Nursery

Joe and I headed out the Green Arrow Nusery to pick up some transplants and seeds for our little kitchen vegetable garden. I haven't been here in a while and was surprised when I saw this sign.

It is good to see them reaching out to the public a bit more. of course, my New Media self wishes they were also recording and podcasting the classes. Then they could reach even more people.
