The Modesto Garden Club welcomes Dundee Butcher as February's General Meeting Speaker. A born teacher of horticulture, Dundee opened the Russian River Flower School in Healdsburg, a school that emphasizes floral design techniques that utilize local, seasonal plant material with a European twist. Join us as Dundee gets meeting participants inspired with floral design ideas that everyone can do to improve upon their current floral design skills. True to her teaching roots, she will do so with a practical and easy to follow demonstration. Click here to check out Russian River Flower School's website where you'll find class schedules and quirky, fun arrangements in the gallery section.Guests are welcome: $10 at the door. Floral2016


Many of you may remember the Enchanted Garden Design table at the June 2015 Summer Luncheon, created by Floralicious Design's Gwen Bauer with help from Lauren Holmes. It was dazzling! These two talented ladies will be the Snack & Learn Speakers for February's meeting. Snack & Learn begins at 10:15 am. And don't forget about Hospitality time, which starts at 10 am and includes member-generated snacks, beverages and conversation! See you there!
