Big Bear Valley, CA — As it hasn’t snowed in, now, over a week, the Big Bear Valley’s “A” Garden Club is ready to spring into action, starting with a kick-off luncheon to be held on Monday, May 10. A Garden Club President Vicky Roney says that whether you have a postage-stamp sized garden or acres to plant, the garden club offers a wealth of information, including tips on composting, birding, xeriscape, soil preparation and plant selection, and many other topics that are covered during second Monday meetings, June through October. But, first, the kick-off luncheon, which takes place at the Sizzler Restaurant (on Big Bear Boulevard, just east of the Moonridge Y in Big Bear Lake) on Monday. Attendees are encouraged to come early to purchase lunch, as the meeting will get underway at 11:30am and continue until 1pm. Garden Club members are asked for a $15 registration fee, which covers the group’s insurance and workshops offered through the summer season. The first regular meeting in June will be held at Copper Q in the Village, from 10am to noon on the 14th; subsequent second Monday meetings will be held at the Big Bear Discovery Center, and also from 10am to noon.
