GGC March 2015

 Meeting - Monday, March 30th  at 7:00 pm

 7:00pm start time. Coffee and refreshments will be available from 7:00pm until 7:30.  For you coffee and tea drinkers, it would be great if you could bring your own mug to the meetings to save us some time on clean up. The meeting will begin at 7:30 pm.

Speaker: Malcolm Geast

Malcolm Geast is the OHA photographer, archivist and serves on the OHA Web Committee. He is fascinated by the world of insects.  He has documented this world in miniature in thousands of photographs mostly taken in his own garden. 

Topic: Beautiful Bugs

There used to be a time when bugs were the enemy of gardeners. Times have changed. More and more gardeners realize that insects play an invaluable role in a healthy garden. They fill the role of scavengers, breaking down organic matter. They work tirelessly as pollinators.  They attract wildlife.   Even some of the nastier and more destructive bugs like earwigs and aphids have important roles to play as food sources for birds and other insects. Malcolm’s presentation will give you a whole new appreciation of insects and other miniscule garden critters.
