ATHOL — North Quabbin Garden Club will host a talk by Ricky Baruc of Seeds of Solidarity in Orange, a farmer-educator, who will discuss no-till gardening that keeps the micro-organisms and worms alive in the soil. The discussion will take place on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m. at the Millers River Environmental Center. 100 Main St.

An affiliate of the Millers River Environmental Center in Athol, the North Quabbin Garden Club formed in 2006 to encourage interest in all phases of home gardening. With efforts to promote better horticultural practices and foster civic beauty, emphasis is placed on the use of native plants, organic gardening, and the conservation of natural resources.

Monthly meetings are usually held on the third Thursday evening of each month featuring informative speakers or workshop sessions. Members are currently working on a wildlife habitat garden at the Millers River Environmental Center.

Guests and new members are always welcome, so join us this month and learn something new about gardening. Meetings are free to members and guests are asked for a donation.
