Seabrook Island Garden Club News

Garden Club-2

The next meeting of the Seabrook Island Garden Club will be  October 9, 2015. It will be from  9:30 to 11:00 AM at the Seabrook Island Lake House.

Speaking this month will be Pat Harpell, founder and chief executive weeder of the South Carolina Herbal Society. Her presentation on “Culinary Herbs and their Folklore” is sure to be interesting and motivating.

In addition to being the fuel behind the SCHS, Pat teaches an Herbal Apprenticeship program in Charleston.  She is also a guest teacher and speaker and leads Yoga and Gardening vacations in the U.S. and Europe.  Pat has had the great honor of taking herbal and medicinal studies with Sarita Shrestha, MD, among many other sages.  She does feel, though, that  her greatest teacher is Mother Nature.

Pat maintains a sustainable, organic garden in her hometown of Charleston and is happiest when there is dirt under her fingernails and between her toes.

Also at the October 9th meeting:
• The Holiday Open House committee will have a sign-up table for volunteers before and after the meeting. We need all members to support the Holiday Open House and volunteer.

• We will also be distributing the 2015-16 Directory. Be sure to pick up your copy at the Registration table.

If you are new to Seabrook Island, the Seabrook Island Garden Club is a great place to meet your neighbors, support your community and cultivate friendships while learning from our experienced gardeners and wonderful speakers on a variety of horticultural related topics.
