    I have been working with Mercer Arboretum and Botanical Gardens to develop and offer quality programs to gardeners.  Coming up is an exceptional trip on Friday Oct. 12th to Lady Bird Wildflower Center near Austin.  Those attending have a fabulous opportunity to buy plants at their members only sale.  Check The Mercer Society Website for details  Watch for other trips planned for 2013 including in the spring Shangri La in Orange Tx and a 3 day trip to the Dallas Arboretum, Fort Worth Arboretum and The Botanical Research Institute and other surprises.
The Norchester Garden Club will be presenting " Catherine The Caterpillar" at Matzke Park Butterfly Garden on Sat. Oct. 20th at 11, 11:30 and noon.  Please join us.
In January, the plastic white fence will be replaced by a white wrought iron fence.  Funding for the new fence has been developed through Association for Better Community Schools. Precinct 4 will support with soil and man power.  ABCS continues to support the maintenance of the butterfly garden, stewardship of the garden, and the children's educational programs.  Most of the monies come from individual donations and support of the Kroger and Randalls Reward Programs.  Thank you for you support. 
I will post work days as they are determined.  Please drop by on these days to help or make suggestions, your opinions and time are important elements to having this garden survive.
