Calendar of Events 2020

Upcoming Speakers for TUMGA meetings – Please respond to Elaine Bliss:

December – no meeting

And upcoming for 2021

January – Ashley Hoppers on Including Fruit in north Georgia landscapes

February – Becky Griffin on Fireflies

I spoke with Jacob who suggests he will be able to do a hybrid meeting format during the winter with both Zoom and in-the-flesh members at the Civic Center. He says if I find a speaker from outside our local “family” that it’s possible for the speaker to address the group via Zoom.

If any members have anything they would like to present for March and maybe April, please let me know. Hopefully by May we will be able to meet in person again. If not, at least we can meet outdoors.


Community Announcements are mixed in with the regular TUMGA Meetings. Friends of Master Gardeners and friends in the community, this is a list of events we thought you might be interested in:
