Garden Day


May is a month for dreamers in GriggsDakota. We dream of summer and that includes dreams about gardens. Everyone in this area appreciates garden flowers and produce.
That is why we had such a good turnout when our local Homemakers Club helped to sponsor a Garden Day. Our speaker, Holly Mawby, followed her dream and with her husband opened 
Holly told us how she researched for a niche market that would allow her family to move back to the area. She found her dream in raising herbs. Check out her website on the link above.
We held a Silent Auction to benefit our county Scholarship Fund.
We followed her presentation with a fabulous lunch
That included bottled Cokes and water served from an old copper boiler.
Holly spoke to us on Container Gardening. Everyone left with information that could make our dreams come true. At least our dreams about raising a successful Container Garden.
