October’s Meeting: “Gifts that Grow” Presentation 10/30/18

We are looking for presenters! Do you enjoy making gifts for your family and friend for the holidays? We could use your help! Anything related to herbs, garden, cooking, crafting, teas, candy, soap making, holiday decorating the ideas are endless! We need you PLEASE, this event is so well loved by our members and we the EHS’s board love to present, but we are really needing some help with this. It’s pretty simple, a quick 5-10 minute talk/demo of your gift with a description for the Gifts that Grow handout and you're back in your seat with applause and fanfare! Talk to Meg at the September meeting.


A Visit from: Rochelle Wolberg, Mounts Curator & Director

Ms. Wolberg will be at our September 25, 2018 meeting to update us on the many programs planned for the garden in the future. The Mounts Botanical Garden is very fortunate to have Rochelle, who brings new ideas transforming the garden into a jewel of Palm Beach County that is worthy of everyone’s visit.

A little help for our friends

Kids Garden Project needs your support!

The Master Gardener Fall Class of 2017 is helping the Coleman Park after school kids learn to grow their own food and we are in need of some herb donations for the garden. Many of these children aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from and the garden will give them food to take home for their families to enjoy and teach them how to grow their own food at home. A farmer donated vegetable seeds but the kids want to grow herbs too. If you have some extra seeds or some cuttings you can donate to the garden please contact Chris Radentz at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (561) 889-8343 or bring your donation to the September or October EHS meeting. We will have someone at these meetings to pick up any donations. If you are interested in volunteering to help with the garden project please contact Chris at the contact information above. We thank you in advance for your help with this community project!
