Today’s guest bloggers reached out to us from Salt Lake City with a recommendation via the contact form on our website. I think you’ll find this post/email inspirational and the recommended article and its links informational.

“As a youth services librarian and educator, I would just like to reach out with a quick word of thanks! Your Garden Club’s resource links list has been a big help to me during these times of remote learning, as I’ve been running a fun educational project on horticulture and botany for a small group of 10-14 year olds online over the last few weeks. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

I hope you don’t mind, one of our youngest, Amelia has also asked me if I could share a piece that she and her mother found together on growing fragrant herbs, which includes a great breakdown on the benefits of having an herb garden, what you can grow, different uses for cooking, aromatherapy, etc. I’ve included it below (note from Suzy: I turned it into this clickable link… Growing Fragrant Herbs | Fragrances & Perfumes) if you’d like to review! We noticed you don’t have this one listed, but Amelia was actually the one to bring up that this could be something you might like to include for other students and families who may also have an interest in learning more about herb gardens during their down time, like our group!

If you find you are able to include her suggestion, would you please let me know? We’re meeting tomorrow virtually, and I would absolutely love to surprise Amelia as well as the group if you’re able to do so – my hope is to keep spirits up in spite the past year’s events. I think Amelia would be proud to know she was able to pay it forward and perhaps show her mother the contribution if it ends up being included!

Thanks again for all your help here, Barbara Lincoln”

…Thanks for sharing with us Barbara. We are proud to post this information from Amelia and appreciate your group paying forward. Happy explorations & happy gardening to all of you…Suzy Crowe on behalf of Roswell Garden Club
