APRIL General meeting & Event Program

Come join us at the EGC Clubhouse Tuesday April 19 for our General Meeting.

Our meeting will begin at 12:15 followed at 1:00 by a presentation from Kelsey Irvine, Volunteer Coordinator and Project manager for the City of Eugene’s Public Parks Planning Office. She will speak to us about how the Native Plant Nursery supports the City of Eugene in maintaining and reestablishing native plants in our city parks and open spaces. She will talk about their work at the city gardens/open spaces, the city projects they are involved with (such as the new Downtown River Front Project), volunteer opportunities and insight as to what they do at the Nursery site itself.

Please stay tuned for when we can reschedule for a tour of the Nursery itself when the weather is a bit more friendly for us.

January 2022 Event Program 

Come join us Tuesday January 18th and kick off the New Year with tips from Janet Hollander on how to have a Happy Body in the Garden.  Janet will give us insight on how to move around in our gardens with less stress on our “maturing” bodies.  But when we do overdo, she has tips on what to do when we find ourselves stiff the day after.  This will be an interactive session with Janet, and she has asked us to bring a broom and a tool that may be giving us pain after using it.

Janet is a Nia Technique teacher, Black Belt, and Trainer who loves to apply her Nia experience to everyday life and has fine tuned some of those techniques specifically for gardeners.  What is Nia you ask?  Nia is a fusion of dance, martial arts and mindfulness practices according to the Nia Now website.

Come join us for a healthier and happier you, your most important natural resource.
