Summer Symposium on Aug. 14

 Janet Nevil will be conducting a Summer Symposium in which she demonstrates how to make a stone planter.

Janet will have all the supplies and know-how for you to make this planter, and take it home to dry (or cure).  Janet has been perfecting the technique and will help us all create our own unique planters.  We will not be able to put plants in our planters on Tuesday night because it will take 24 hours for the concrete to dry.  However, if you have succulents that you would like to share with the group, please bring them.  These planters will be great for displaying pretty succulents (like “hen and chicks”) or ferns.

If you want to get an advance peek of the techniques involved, you can watch Martha Stewart make these planters at the link below.  But our own “Martha Stewart” (Janet) will give you hands-on instructions.

It will be helpful for Janet to plan the supplies needed if you will let Janet know if you plan to attend this Symposium.

Prospective members are welcome to attend this symposium. For more information or to RSVP, contact Mary Baughman, membership chair, at
