"Mulch, Worms, and a Raffle Winner – It’s a Garden Club Meeting!" By Lila Johnson

Over half of the Garden Club membership gathered around their iPads and laptops to learn from January’s guest speaker Ladd Smith. Ladd, a co-founder of In Harmony Sustainable Landscape, Bothell, brought his fun sense of humor as he spoke about building our soil now for happier plants and easier Spring gardening.

"December delivered Surprises for Mill Creek Garden Club Members!" By Lila Johnson

"Mill Creek Garden Club Leaps into the 21st Century!" By Lila Johnson

It took a bit of nudging, but we did it! It might have been a baby step rather than a leap, but December 8th marked the first Zoom meeting for Mill Creek Garden Club. Oh my, I cannot tell you how great it was seeing all those smiling faces. We laughed about makeup or lack thereof, casual or formal attire, and long or short hair.

A Winning Combination: The Community Care Garden, Colton Gabel, and Mill Creek Garden Club

Enter Colton Gabel, currently a junior at Jackson High School, and his supportive parents Christy and Preston. Christy wanted to help in our community where so many are experiencing economic stress due to Covid, so she signed up to volunteer at the Food Bank and Colton joined her. 

It was a chance coming together: Mill Creek Garden Club, a need for more vegetable planters at the Community Care Garden and a young man willing to build them. Enter Colton Gabel, currently a junior at Jackson High School, and his supportive parents Christy and Preston.
