This series of four articles will hopefully give a complete picture of progress made in 2014 within Friends of the Garden, Inc., and at the Springfield/Greene County Botanical Gardens. They will also spotlight plans for the future, not only for the coming year but beyond.
The first article is a presentation given by FOG President, Lisa Bakerink on January 8, 2015 at the first monthly meeting of the Friends of the Garden. In it, she discusses general progress made in the various gardens and the Dr. Bill Roston Butterfly House and thanks our volunteers and partner organizations.
The second article is a combination of presentations made at the January 8th meeting by Kelly McGowan, Garden Chair and Nancy Schmidt. Kelly goes into more detail about each of the gardens we maintain while Nancy focuses on the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden and it's progress and plans.
Third we have the text of a Power Point Presentation given at the same, January 8th meeting by Katie Steinhoff, coordinator of the Botanical Center at the Springfield/Greene County Botanical Gardens and ex-officio board member of Friends of the Garden. Katie shares with the membership projects completed during 2014 and planned for 2015 as well as events on the 2015 schedule, volunteer training plans and more.
Finally, we've re-published the article written by Katie Steinhoff, Reflect upon the Springfield Botanical Gardens 2014 season and a wish list with goals for the for the years to come, which was originally found in the FOG Winter Newsletter, December 2014/January 2015 and which was also featured on the home page of this website earlier this January.
We hope you find these informative and exciting!
