Garden Pathways series free to the public

Garden Pathways began in 2007 when the Outreach Committee of Blythefield Christian Reformed Church had a vision of reaching friends and neighbors. Their motto has been to explore God’s creation through the means of bringing in experts to speak about different aspects of gardening.

Once a month, beginning in March and continuing throughout the spring and summer season, the group explores a different pathway. Some of the paths they have explored have led to pruning, composting, herbs, rain gardens, orchids, tree identification, bulbs, growing vegetables, and more. They have also visited various gardens in the summer to see wildflower fields, rose gardens and perennial gardens.

Beginning this month, Garden Pathways will go down a pathway to learn about various viburnums and where they can be used in home gardens. In April, the group will learn about growing and using ornamental grasses. Coming in the month of May is an opportunity to learn all about daylilies. Then, in the month of June, they will learn about water gardening, and where and how to build a backyard pond. All of these learning experiences are at no charge, and refreshments are included.

The public is invited to join in the Garden Pathways on the third Thursday evening of the month at 7 p.m. at Blythefield Christian Reformed Church, 6350 Kuttshill Dr. NE. For more information, visit the church website at www.blythefieldcrc.com or call the church office

at (616) 866-2962.
