January 2013 Message Cocoa Beach Garden Club



President's Message
Julia George


Happy New Year! We continue to experience lots of fun at our general meetings, and have heard from many very informative speakers. I hope you will come when you can, and bring a friend or two. I am always looking for gardening projects, educational opportunities, or conservation needs within our community that we can learn from and/or participate in together. Let’s put our heads together and do something beautiful in our community!

Send me your ideas and we’ll start planning—and doing. January 17th is Florida’s Arbor Day—make sure to spend a little extra time enjoying the natural beauty around us. And if you do a special project in recognition of the day, share it with us in our next newsletter.

Now is not too early to start planning to attend the FFGC Annual Convention in St. Petersburg (April 14- 16). I went to my first one last April and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much information (and lots of fun too)! I hope this New Year brings you much happiness and good health.

Please keep your fellow gardeners in mind as you count your blessings this year. Happy Gardening!   …….Julia

The Green Marketplace

The Green Marketplace is a cooperative partnership between three local growers, Naturewise, Hise Farms and Country Eight Farm. We are all small local growers who believe in using sustainable methods to grow our plants and produce. At the marketplace you will find native and edible plants, fresh, seasonal, chemical-free produce, raw honey, farm products like goat milk soap, luffas, jellies, and more, as well as natural gardening products. We have limited retail hours as we need time to grow our plants and produce.
