The River Valley Garden Club begins the 2011/12 season with speaker Genelle Treaster on Tuesday, September 27. Genelle will be speaking on gardening for wildlife. The presentation introduces an ecological and conservation based look at gardening and how the average person can increase their yard's capacity for native wildlife species, saving money and energy. Genelle will start with the big picture and then focus on our local area.

Genelle opened All Things Wild in March 2006 in Wilton. She sells native and drought tolerant plants at local Farmer's Markets: Wednesdays at Chavez Park (10th and J), Saturdays at Sunrise Mall (behind Sears), and Sundays Downtown Sacramento (6th and X Streets). Plants will be for sell after the meeting. If you want to purchase a specific variety, call and place the order a few days before the meeting. Her grow list is on her website:

The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m., refreshments and social time at 6:30. Come and get inspired to make a difference in your yard and to talk with others who garden in our area. Membership is $20 for the year. You can attend one of our meetings before becoming a member. Hope to see you there.
