Join us to share photos, food, and stories of our native plant adventures and encounters. Members and anyone interested in native plants are welcome to all our meetings. Don’t worry if you haven’t been saving seeds—there are always plenty to share. If you have photos or food to share, please click on “Read More!”

Join us Wednesday, December 5th at 7 p.m. at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Library, 1420 Price Park Dr, Greensboro, NC 27410 (phone 336-373-2923). If you bring food, the library asks that it be packaged items (not homemade). 

For the December meeting, some people bring bulk seed, so it’s good to bring some small envelopes, if they’re handy. Some bring plants. There is always plenty to share, so don’t worry if you haven’t been saving seeds or dividing plants, just come and join in growing natives! 

Guidelines for photos for the December get-together:
- Photos of native plants, native plant communities, and related wildlife taken in 2018.
- We may try a time limit rather than a photo limit this year—join us on November 7th to discuss. If so, you could plan to share 5 or a few more photos (or a photo montage), but may need to stop when the timer goes off (probably 4 minutes each at most).
- Please email photos to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and let her know if you’d like her to put them into a powerpoint format with others or want to keep your design (if already in powerpoint). You are also welcome to bring a flash drive the night of the event, but please plan to arrive a few minutes early, if so, and if we decide to try the timing approach, it would be good to know in advance if you’ll be bringing a flashdrive.
- In 2017, Nancy was unable to upload the photos to the Yahoo!Groups website. Apparently some aspects of Yahoo! are no longer being updated or supported, so we may want to consider moving to a different venue for photo and file sharing—suggestions welcome. Nancy will try sharing on the website again (after the program) or figure out a new posting site, so if you have any objections to that, just let us know at the meeting.
- No competition, but time for each photographer to share a little about their photos. If you don’t have photos, but want to share a native plant story, we’d love to hear it, too!
