Happy New Year!

Westside Garden Club will meeting today, 10 am – noon at the Veneta Community Center.

Come and hear a brief talk on composting by our very own Master Composter Nora Webber. Nora will share how to make composting easy and simple for you and your household.

We will also hear Heather Blake of the Elmira Grange discuss the Grange’s new plastic collection and the proper way to recycle plastic and avoid putting it in the landfill.

Lastly, we will have a club round table and club members will show their favorite ways of reusing items to reduce waste. If you have something you would like to share, please bring it with you and show off your creativity!

As we start the new decade, let’s focus on being even better stewards of the land, beyond our gardens.
