Wednesday, March 6th 8:30 pm
I just wanted to let you know that there will be a General Meeting this Wednesday. There will be no speaker but we will be discussing the various projects that are available for Hort members to participate. Here are some of the things that we will be talking about and will be keeping an eye out for any one who wants to be involved!
Spring Garden Show
The design has been completed and the work to construct it has begun. There is ALOT of work that needs to be done so if its something you want to get involved with join us on Wednesday. Or if you can’t make it, starting last week we have been meeting EVERY Saturday at 9 am, near the shed at the back of the department. We will need help constructing the remainder of the bench structures, as well as the planter boxes. We need some more people working on a plant list also. If you’d like to gives us a hand you are more then welcome to join us Saturdays, we can use all the help we can get.
In case you haven’t heard we have been working with Santa Clara University to come up with a landscape plan for their submission to the Solar Decathelon Competition. The Solar Decathelon is a national comptition that brings together schools from all over the nation to design and build a solar home which calls for sustainabiltiy, efficiency, and affordability. The Competition will be held at the Great Park in Irvine this year, hence Santa Clara has called on us to help them with the landscape. This is a fantastic opportunity for students, and definitely an amazing learning experience. If you wish to get involved please join us on Wednesday!
OC Fair Garden Display and Speaking Opportunity
Centenial Farms has asked us, Horticulture Club, to participate in the OC fair in July. They have asked us to come up with a design for a landscape. They have various spaces available and are open to any ideas, as long as it is educational. They are also looking for speakers, so if any one is interesting in giving a talk on any topic feel free to bring your ideas to the meeting! More information will be available on Wednesday, so make sure you join us if you are interested!
If there is time there will also be a fun activity planned, and as usual there will be food and drinks available! There is so much going on, and there is quite a bit on our plate and we will need a lot of involvement from other club members! So if any of these things spark your interest make sure you join us on Wednesday!
