Lyme Gardeners is a very informal group of people from Lyme and surrounding communities who are interested in everything about gardens and gardening. Our primary activity is (usually) weekly visits to gardens.
We have a very active listserv. Listserv subscribers are notified of PMGs, and other events four days before. Subscribers are welcome to post any gardening-related observations, resources, questions, suggestion, ideas for field trips, plant exchanges, etc.
Everyone on the listserv receives automatic reminders of each PMG four days before each event, with times, directions, and often some things to consider as you visit.
To subscribe to this listserv, send a blank message to firstname.lastname@example.org
Because of Covid, each Pardon My Garden is likely to be unique. Hosts get to decide whatever makes them feel comfortable and safe. In some cases, longer hours to visit, or asking people to RSVP, or staggering the visits. And I expect some will decide not to host their event. Subscribe to the listserv for timely updates on each event.
As we have learned so dramatically this year, about the only thing we can reliably predict is that what we know today may change tomorrow.
Keeping that in mind, here is the Pardon My Garden calendar for July & August as of now:
Tuesday, July 7: Charlotte & Karl Furstenberg, Lyme 3-7
Thursday, July 16: Jodie & Brian Rich, Lyme 1-5
Tuesday, July 21: Jim Kennedy, Hanover 4-7
Tuesday, July 28: Susan Edwards, Hanover 5:30-7
Tuesday, August 4: Ann & Ted Thompson, Piermont
Tuesday, August 11: Daniel Himmelstein, 6 Grant Road, Hanover
Thursday, August 20: Jeanie Stevenson, Kelly Spooner, Lyme Inn 1-5

Everyone is welcome at all Lyme Gardener events, so bring along friends, neighbors, relatives.
