Happy 76th Birthday Jim!

A big thank you to Jim Haseman for his wonderful program on Thursday night. We had 37 attendees and everyone enjoyed getting Jim's perspective on gardening. We all appreciated hearing about his experiences and his tips were well-received as well. Jim, while a huge asset as an RPMGA member and volunteer out at the Rock County Farm, also plays vital roles at RBG with his volunteer efforts and work with the RECAPPERS. We need more people like Jim in this world and doesn't he look youthful for 76!?

Don't miss the Pruning talk on July 20th (6pm-8pm) with Chris Ranum from L.P. Tree Service. Chris, a Certified Arborist, will start with a presentation and we'll then head out in to the gardens to look at some examples. The last RPMGA talk is on August 4th on Horseradish by the Janesville Area Herb Society (7pm-8pm).
