The Monroeville Garden Club met on January 9, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. at the Monroeville Presbyterian Church. Nancy Ziebach was hostess and Elba Bonham served as co-hostess.
Mike McQueen, Agent with the Auburn Extension Service, gave a power point presentation on raised bed gardening. This is a "form of gardening in which the soil is formed in 3 to 4 feet wide beds enclosed by some type of frame and enriched with compost. Raised bed gardening is a good alternative to traditional in-ground gardening when you have poor soil, drainage problems or physical limitations".
After a short business session, members were served Cheesecake brownies, Mexican Dip with Chips, Tortilla Spirals, Cinnamon Pecans, apple slices, coffee and punch. Eleven members attended.
