Giving through Gardening Donation to the Farmer Frog Project
At the October lunch it was announced the board on behalf of the members, made a donation of $2000.00 to the Farmer Frog Project. It just felt like the perfect fit!
The Mission Statement for Farmer Frog is: Sprouting Simple Change
When children and families grow food for themselves, they sow the seeds of positive living. Farmer Frog cultivates programs, school gardens, and hands on learning to nurture communities.

The Mill Creek Garden clubs Michael Crawford and Lynn Menne teamed up with the Mill Creek Library to present two classes on April 9th and 12th. The first class was titled Patio Gardening, talking about how to create beautiful, vibrant gardens on balconies, terraces, patios, and entrance ways. The second Growing Vegetables in Containers, growing fresh, wholesome food, even in your tiny garden!
The classes were filled to capacity and great fun. The audience learned that you do not need a big garden to grow whatever you wish. They were entertained at the same time, Lynn and Michael make quite a team.
