St. Louis Water Garden Society

September 18: Companion Planting

Our September 18th speaker will be Marsha Smith, a Master Gardner since 2015, on the topic “Companion Planting”.  Marsha has been involved in ornamental gardening and vegetable gardening for more than 30 years, maintaining a large vegetable garden in Franklin County and running a sizeable seed-starting operation each spring.  We look forward to her presentation and hope that you will join us.

This meeting will be held in the Missouri Botanical Garden Commerce Bank Educational Center (CBEC), at 4651 Shaw Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63110.  It will be free for both members and non-members.
