2017 Garden Club Event Photos

A Day Trip to Cherokee Ranch & Castle, July 14, 2017 was enjoyed by a group of Summit County Garden Club members led by Liz Wickert.   A beautiful summer day enhanced our view, gourmet sundeck lunch and tour of the castle and grounds.   This is a unique treasure that lends itself to a fun outing within a reasonable drive from Summit County!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cooking Workshop, Asian "Parcels" by Liz Wickert.  Members learned how to prepare 3 delicious appetizers in Liz's kitchen on May 11th.   Great fun was had by

all and everyone went home with the recipes.   Thanks so much, Liz, for opening your home and sharing your cooking expertise with club members!

We try to educate our members and the community about gardening in Summit County and provide a social setting for informational exchanges to share the beauty of gardening with others.

There's lots going on in our Club and room for many to be involved. It's surprising how much we accomplish in our short Summit summers.
