The leaves are starting to fall, colder weather is right around the corner – and believe it or not, it’s a great time to join the Berrien Springs Garden Club.
“Gardening never really stops if you include the planning and prep processes that happen during the colder months,” explains Marianne Kordas, President of the Berrien Springs Garden Club. The club is active year-round, with unique events, like trail walks, presentations, and educational demonstrations, nearly every month. Some highlights include a wild edibles and foraging identification walk on October 10, an herbal tea and tinctures workshop on November 14, and the annual cookie exchange and club member meeting on December 5. In January, the club is tentatively planning a visit to an organic microgreens farm, in February, a visit to the local Dowagiac band of Potawatomi for a maple syrup lecture and demonstration, and an early-spring garden bed prep demonstration in March. “We welcome new members at any time of year for the low price of $13 for an annual membership,” Kordas says.
