Coming Up Next:


Monday, October 9th at 12:00 (for social/short meeting) and at 12:30 (program) – Deese Hall

Program: “Communication Among Trees and Plants”

Presented by: Michael Timko, PhD

Hosted by: Nancy Butters and Susan Nagy

Other Details:

As gardeners we see daily that what we do impacts on our lives as well as others….we live and have impact here and now, as well as globally , leaving our mark on all that follows us.  These are thoughts I’ve had in reading about our speaker Dr.Michael Timko. In his studies and work from engineering to biology at institutions including Ohio State, M.I.T. and Harvard, and , luckily for us, U.V.A., he uses the interconnection of many fields of science to address the needs society and our planet have now , and will have going forward.

Club members Joy Mathews and Fran Dickerson told me about hearing Dr. Timko speak about communication among trees. It is a fascinating subject and we are fortunate to have him present his thoughts to us on October 9th, importantly the day we pay respect to the first Americans who acted as stewards of our land. We look forward to many attendees!

We’ll have a short social and meeting before the speaker begins, and we’ll finish up any necessary business after – On the business “agenda” is collection of dues, nominating and voting in a new Treasurer, and hopefully thanking someone for stepping up and helping Sue Gosnell as Program Co-Chair!

And just FYI, we are thankful for the folks who have already signed up to Host, and hope you will volunteer if you don’t see your name already listed!  BMGC provides the plates, utensils, napkins, and cups, and the Host(esses) bring a light snack and maybe something to drink, planning for about 15-20 people. Easy.  Fun to do as a team of two, but also often done Solo.  Either way is fine!  Please sign up by contacting the Secretary, Valerie Shepherd – valerieshepherd1@gmail.com .
