Goochland Garden Club

This morning I had the privilege to talk with the Ladies of the Goochland Garden Club. What an energetic group they are. Most clubs like me to wait somewhere until it’s time for me to lecture, some allow me to sit in. I’m glad these gals let me sit in, I got to hear all that they were up to, and man, are they busy. They put out so much business that they had done, and were gonna do, I forgot what I was supposed to talk about. But it got me thinking on how important  community involvement is. How nice it is to see the span of years in age, and they all had a common goal. And that is to give

As I was being introduced, I was actually thinking, “I can’t compete with them”. But then when I started to get into my subject matter, they made me feel welcome. They wanted to know what I knew. I never have given a lecture in all these years where I didn’t learn something from my group, but these ladies made me remember the basic values in my endeavors, and that is I have been, given… I have been given simple values as a child, and what I did with them was up to me. I chose, to give. So Thank You Ladies of this club, for allowing me to intrude.

I was given two topics to talk about, and I think we covered about nine. I could still be going, if it wasn’t for food, and yes they had a very nice spread, including Peach Tea, haven’t had that in probably two decades. It’s not often that I write about my classes or lectures that I give, but this one was especially pleasant. I am happy this group is doing the things I heard about during their meeting. Not just because it was about gardening, but because it was a community that cared, that, like me, want to leave what they found, better than how they found it.

Thank You Ladies of the Goochland Garden Club, for having me.
