This program gives an interesting overview of the plants the Master Gardeners have chosen to offer this year in the Plant Sale. It covers not just the plants themselves, but also tips on what to plant where, how certain plants can solve problems in the yard, and how these plants can fit in with past purchases. Discover why certain plants are chosen by GMMG members and how to make informed decision on what to plant in your garden paradise. Come with questions in mind and get the answers you need from the MGs present!
One of our local Master Gardeners, Nici Angell, is known not just for her love of nature, but also for her art in many mediums. Often requested as a speaker, she brings knowledge with humor in a wide range of topics. Since moving to Dahlonega 10 years ago, Nici has been involved in the Friends of the Dahlonega Gold Museum, Gold Country Squares (square dancing), Gold Diggers Garden Club, Lumpkin County Historical Society, and the Georgia Mountains Master Gardeners. For many their first sight of Nici is when she strolls through town during events in hoop skirts or bustle dresses she has sewn herself. Others know her best for her paintings and handmade jewelry. But to fellow gardeners, her knowledge of the natural world and how to explain it (from her biology degree) is the part of her they appreciate the most.
