1 min read

DERBY — The Four Seasons Garden Club held its annual potluck meeting on February 13, where members combined culinary delights with a hands-on learning experience in floral design and horseradish cultivation. The event, hosted at Derby Community Church, provided a perfect setting for both camaraderie and education.

Club President Carol Bailey and fellow member Helen Before led the sessions. Bailey, an expert in floral arrangements, shared her skills with attendees, guiding them in creating two floral designs from fresh flowers. These creations were later gifted to club members Helen Before and Anne Page, in celebration of their upcoming birthdays in March.

Following the meal, Helen Before shifted the focus to horseradish, offering insights into its history, health benefits, culinary uses, and tips for growing it in home gardens. This presentation highlighted the club’s commitment to diverse learning opportunities in gardening and related fields.

The club extended its gratitude to Pastor Mike Haddad of Derby Community Church for his technical assistance and the use of the church hall for this gathering.

The Four Seasons Garden Club, a staple in the Northeast Kingdom’s community, invites individuals interested in gardening, community service, and nature to join their ranks.
