February General Membership Meeting

Speaker: Joy Jacobs
Topic: How I Began G ardening with Native Plants
Joy is a Hardware Engineer that recently changed b ack to Software Engineering to work on Autonomous vehicles.
Joy and her spouse bought their home in Sept. 2008, and it was the "Money Pit" personified. Joy calls her home, "the house in the woods in the suburbs" as one could drive by and not see it. She tried the typical homeowner ornamental plants with failure. Then set out to learn about and plant native plants and has transformed their garden.
