Groundbreakers

Groundbreakers is a group of women who share a common interest in gardening.

We meet seasonally to learn from each other and from community resources. We include a wide range of expertize; from Master Gardeners to accidental gardeners; from the passionate to the ho hum.

Our current interests include herbs, pollinators, perennials, vegetables, containers, scavengers, succulents, raised beds, soil augmentation and information for newer residents about our Piedmont garden superstars.

We welcome everyone who wants to learn more about gardening.  You will find our email in the "Contacts" tab above.  Look under Group Chairs for "Groundbreakers".
