Dave Hemminger Master Naturalist, Ozark Chapter gives Lake Bloomers FGCM members a heads up on the benefits of natural and organic gardening. Dave and Dell presented a power point along with an Education display on informational pros and cons of pesticides and composting. resource access www.beyondpesticides.org. 

Each garden club member is being encouraged to approach healthier options in building soil and avoiding harmful pesticides and pest control by using house hold remedies as organic weed abatement and compost soil enrichment. By practicing these reminders we are hoping to have a better quality of plants for the annual Plant Sale June 1-2 at Ozark Chapel Methodist Church on Hiway 5 Laurie with proceeds going toward scholarships given to lake area high school graduates furthering their education in various areas of horticulture.
