Thanks to Debbie Naha Koretzky, the wild edibles lady, who provided our picnic program: "Foraging from Your Backyard". She introduced us to a large variety of wild edibles such as autumn olive, spring beauties, purslane, beech leaves, spicebush, multi flora rose and white pine needles with suggestions for salads, side dishes and teas. 
Following her presentation, she took our group on a wild edible forage around the church grounds.

Thanks to the Picnic Committee for set up and clean up of our annual guild picnic. The weather cooperated and a good time was had by all. The buffet table offerings were delicious. Thanks to president John for hauling his grill and serving as grill master for the evening. Picnic favors were herbal pictures on a tree slice which was very creative. Thanks to everyone who worked to make this event a success.

Thanks to Linda B and her committee for their hard work organizing the plant auction, our fundraiser. Also thanks to all of our members who donated plants and garden items. Many members hauled a box or two from the plant room after our sale.

You can donate seeds in labeled envelopes or baggies for the Bloomsburg Seed Library at the Bloomsburg Public Library. They requested seeds for vegetables, herbs and garden flowers.
