Many opportunities await anyone interested in gardening and meeting others who enjoy all aspects of the outdoors. The Kingwood Garden Club will celebrate Texas Arbor Day at the Reforest the Forest event, which will be held Saturday, Nov. 10, in the parking lot of the Kingwood Library. Kate Henderson is in charge of the project.
Also at the library that day, the club is having its 17th Annual Tree Sale. More than 40 species of native trees and shrubs, fruit trees, citrus, and many rare and hard-to-find plants will be available. The 1-5-gallon treasures will be priced from $5-$20. Knowledgeable gardeners will be on hand to help buyers choose; there is something for every yard.
This is the 45th year for the Kingwood Garden Club, which is active in the Home and Garden Tour, Community Symposium, Arbor Day planting, Butterfly Gardens, Yard of the Month, Green Club and Memorial Gardens. The club also offers floral design and horticulture workshops, educational excursions and flower shows.
On Nov. 29 at 10 a.m. at the Kingwood Library, participants will learn to make beautiful, old-fashioned eggshell decorations, pine cone ornaments, globe decorations and origami stars. The decorated tree will be on display at the Christmas luncheon and then donated to the library. Those wanting to take advantage of this unique opportunity will decorate an egg for themselves to take home. This is a free workshop.
