leave a comment »

Do you miss gardening in the winter?  We can’t get our hands in the dirt for a few more months, but we can get our gardening “fix” by getting together and talking plants!  The Arboretum has been hosting garden chats monthly (January-March) to discuss articles from a different gardening magazine (you do not need to have the magazine to attend).

Please join us for our final garden chat next Thursday, March 17th at the Waterloo Public Library.  We will be discussing articles from the magazine, Fine Gardening.

All are welcome – no registration required!  We hope you can join us!  Please call (319)226-4966 with questions or email me at director@cedarvalleyarboretum.org.
