As a Master Gardener, member of the local daylily and rose societies, and member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. I want to utilize their existing meetings and programs to offer education and to network with other gardening enthusiasts. I plan to follow the NGC conservation pledge: “to protect and conserve the natural resources of the planet earth and promise to promote education so we may become caretakers of our air, water, forest, land, and wildlife.” A national effort sponsored by multiple organizations is now underway to establish a million pollinator gardens. I plan to offer the plants and programs to help meet these goals. I want to encourage garden club members and anyone to whom I speak to include pollinator gardens and safe sites for wildlife in their landscaping plans.
