The Takoma Horticultural Club Presents

Small Water Features in the Garden

Wednesday, July 19, 7:30pm

presented by Joan Kramer, Master Gardener
Historic Takoma, Inc., 7328 Carroll Ave., Takoma Park, MD

Joan Kramer loves to talk about container water gardens and how to put them together in your own garden – especially if you don’t think you can manage such a project. Be careful! If you come to hear her talk on July 19, at our monthly Takoma Horticultural Club meeting, she may talk you into becoming a “water gardener”. Her Power Point presentation will focus on making a container water garden to fit your space; focusing on size, light requirements and the various plants suitable for container water gardens. She hopes to inspire us to create our own container garden and expand the type of plants we can grow, while enjoying the soothing calm of our water feature and attracting more birds and pollinators to our gardens.

Joan has been president of both the St. John’s and the Flower Valley Garden Clubs. She currently serves as Secretary of the Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Rescue Association Auxiliary and is Historian for the Ladies Auxiliary Maryland State Firemen’s Association. Joan seems to truly be an Earth, Fire & Water person!! As a Montgomery County Master Gardener, she is active in the Demonstration Garden at Derwood and works with the Therapeutic Horticultural and the Urban Gardener groups.

Come and enjoy an informative and interesting talk. We invite you to bring your questions and share your experiences with water gardens – all sizes and shapes. By the way, Joan also keeps bees. There will be some nice door prizes, so be sure to sign in when you arrive. Please bring a snack to share, a recycled name tag and a friend. This talk is free and open to the public, but you are welcome to join or renew your 2017 membership in the Takoma Horticultural Club.

The Takoma Horticultural Club (THC) welcomes gardeners from Takoma Park and surrounding areas, including DC, Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, and beyond.
