The business has been operating in its current location in Rockport since 1989 and are renowned for their dedication to bringing unusual plants to Midcoast gardeners. Mr. Buck has a degree in landscape architecture from Cornell University and will discuss the latest in the world of annuals and perennials.

This month’s short environmental topic will be: “Japanese Beetles: I Never Promised You A Rose Garden”, with club member Martha Laitin. After a break, featuring snacks and finger foods provided by the Hospitality Committee, Hammon Buck will give his presentation.

The Belfast Garden Club has promoted civic beautification since 1929. They maintain 12 gardens around the city each year, host Open Garden Days garden tours during the summer, and support education through donations to the Belfast Free Library, Troy Howard Middle School Garden Project, and an annual education scholarship. Each meeting of the Belfast Garden Club is open to the public. The club welcomes new members and volunteers year round.
