We like to play in the dirt

The Charlottesville Horticulture Club announces another new season with important speakers discussing various aspects of gardening and horticulture as they affect gardeners here in the Western Piedmont area. We meet the third Tuesday of each month from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Senior Center in Charlottesville. We begin our fall season on September 21, 2004. All Senior Center members are welcome. Refreshments are served. Come join us. Friends are welcome.
