Bar Harbor Garden Club Luncheon and Program
May 12 @ 11:30 am$25 members; $30 nonmembers
The Bar Harbor Garden Club is pleased to present “Growing Dahlias” with Mary Turner, founder and owner of Salt Farm Flowers, Master Gardener and educator, on Thursday, May 12, at the Kebo Valley Golf Club, 136 Eagle Lake Road, Bar Harbor.
The annual meeting and luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. All are welcome to join.
Mary will give a presentation of her experience as a commercial flower grower. She will focus her talk on growing and propagating dahlias in coastal Maine and will also share some of her techniques, tips and favorite dahlias. Popular varieties other than dahlias will also be discussed.
Salt Farm Flowers, located in Trenton, was founded in 2014 and produces over 100 varieties of sustainably grown heirloom flowers and botanicals. With the guidance of organizations like the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers (ASCFG) and with the help of friends and family, a flower farm was created on fallow farmland, and it continues to grow.
Mary has combined her master’s degree in education and a love of growing things to enable her to begin an encore career as a flower farmer. Many years of volunteering as a Master Gardener helped to form the concept and provide the confidence to start Salt Farm Flowers.
The public is invited to attend this luncheon and speaker program, but reservations must be made in advance by emailing [email protected] or calling 460-8496 by May 2.
The all-inclusive lunch cost is $30 for nonmembers and $25 for members and includes a choice of veggie or turkey club wrap, beverage, fresh baked cupcakes and gratuity. Payment may be made at the door. Please specify any dietary restrictions.
