About Ginny Fletcher, Master Gardener
After a 38-year career in the automotive field, where digging in the dirt became the prescription for maintaining my sanity, I became a Master Gardener in 2010. Since then I have had the privilege to work with many organizations as a volunteer.
Working at the plant sales at the Memphis Botanic Garden, Dixon and Lichterman has been extremely valuable in learning about the various annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs that grow well in this area.
I have served as Vice-President and President of the Memphis Horticulture Society and I am currently serving as the MHS Newsletter editor and a member of the MHS Membership Committee. I am also currently serving as President of the Memphis Area Master Gardeners, a member of the Master Gardener Education Committee, Calendar Committee, Spring Fling Food Committee Co-Chair, and the Intern Interview Committee.
I became a beekeeper a couple of years ago and find it to be a most rewarding experience. And, since I maintain a vegetable garden each year, it has also been very beneficial.
It is my pleasure to be able to bring an educational program to you today that might just change or enhance your ideas on gardening.
Join Us: Saturday July 23rd at Palladio Garden, 11am for Ginny’s presentation. Learn how vertical gardening is fun, creative and provides many opportunities to create a calming atmosphere, hide an ugly area, create a privacy screen, increase your yield, or make use of objects that may be stored in the attic or garage, or even found on the street. Also includes pertinent information on container gardening.
