When: Friday, September 13, 2019, 9:30 am

Not a member yet? Don’t let the name fool you! The Seabrook Island Garden Club is a great place to meet your neighbors, to learn about our natural environment, and to support your community.

The monthly speakers bring us a treasure trove of information. There is a great line up this year that you will not want to miss. Kicking off the October program will be Lucas Snyder, the founder and Executive Director for South Carolina Hemp Farmers Association (yes, really) and W. Louis Miles, a scientist and entrepreneur. Having always been focused on the functional intersection of science and business, Mr. Miles took a leap of faith with the development of the legal US Cannabis industry, and led chemistry and compounding for a Colorado Cannabis startup focused on pharmaceutical preparations.

Other topics such as feng shui, flower arranging, pruning and grafting will follow throughout the year. We will also take our meeting on the road to learn about hydroponic farming and the opportunity for a special hands-on workshop as a follow up to the flower arranging program.

Our big event of the year is the Holiday Open House. All Seabrook Island residents are invited as we toast the opening of the holiday season in early December. Serving the outside community the Seabrook Island Garden Club also contributes towards a horticulture scholarship for a deserving student at Trident Technical College.

Monthly agendas include light refreshments at 9:30 am, a brief business report at 10:00 am, followed by the guest speaker. The meetings usually conclude between 11:00 and 11:30 am and take place on the second Friday of each month at the Oyster Catcher Community Center.

Still not sure? Come join us on September 13 to learn what is new this year. New members and guests are always welcomed. Contact for membership information.
