Upcoming and ongoing events

Dear members:

In these topsy times, we trust everyone is well and spending good time in their gardens.

As we move from lockdown towards socially acceptable physical distancing, we have decided to continue to put Open Gardens on hold for June. In the meantime, VHPG is adding a list of interesting websites, videos, newletters, and instagram accounts on our website. Perhaps this will give us a garden boost to where we can’t go in real life. If you would like to add to this list, please send a note to danacromie@gmail.com
