We had a great time at our Annual Meeting!

We had a great time at our Annual Meeting Tuesday night! The short (but required!) business meeting started with a welcome, land acknowledgment, and introductory remarks by land trust board president Rock Singewald. Then we had a financial report by land trust treasurer Jenny Flannigan. The meeting ended after the nominations of and vote for the next slate of board members and officers. After the business meeting we were treated to a nice presentation on “Natural Beautiful Gardening” by Master Gardener Sally Johnson of Ecoastal Design. Check out her webpage.

Join us at Cutler Mills for our Annual Meeting!

Tuesday, January 17th, 7:00 pm

Location: The Event Room at Culter Mill, 16 Culter Street (behind Tom’s Market)

Cookies and cider, good company, a short business meeting, and then we’ll be treated to a presentation on ‘Natural Beautiful Gardening’ by Native Plant Trust Master Gardener Sally Johnson.

Sally will demonstrate how to use science and art to create a garden which is useful, aesthetically pleasing, and equally attractive to wildlife. She will use the example of her coastal home garden but the principles of plant observation, landscape study and functional needs assessment and garden design can be applied to a range of native plant projects.

Sally owns ecoastal design, a small landscape business. She is a Master Gardener certified as a native plant horticulturalist by the Native Plant Trust, and as an invasive species manager by the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council. She holds a graduate degree in Marine Policy from URI and a BA in geography from Dartmouth College.
