Garden Club meets Oct. 28

The Garden Club of Harvard will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Oct. 28.

The guest speaker will be Andi Ross, a master gardener and creative landscape designer who studied at the Harvard University Landscape Institute.

Andi believes that gardens filled with flowering shrubs can provide as much drama as a perennial garden — with much less work. Her presentation will feature information on plant selection, bloom times and maintenance.

The meeting will begin at 11:15 a.m. at Holy Trinity Parish/St. Theresa’s Church and is open to the public.

Lunch and a business meeting will precede the speaker. New members are welcome.
