What a great way to learn about the International Gardening! (Did you know this is one of the objectives of the National Council of Garden Clubs?)
Fountain Inn Garden Club Vice President, Jill Scherer, shared her family's rich Swiss heritage as she gave instructions and modeled how to use onion skins to dye eggs. She demonstrated how to add plant material to the eggs to create gorgeous designs.
Kerry's Kids club members had the opportunity to actually then create their own eggs that they designed and dyed in the onion skin water.
Fran Swanson, FIGC member, has donated her collection of birds' nests and eggs to the club so that we can use them in educational programs. From the smallest egg, the hummingbird, to a goose egg, the children learned about how the birds build their nests.
Our club meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month, from September through May. We meet in the Fountain Inn Historical Museum, located in the Chamber of Commerce building at 102 Depot Street, Fountain Inn, SC.
We start our meetings at 10:00 AM. Please feel free to join us for each and all of our meetings! We would love to have you "put down your roots" and join us or just attend as a visitor! For more information, please contact Sheila Miller/President or any member of the Ft. Inn Garden Club.
