Constance Sims hosted the Jacksonville Garden Club meeting Aug. 21 in the Fireplace Room at the community center. President Sheila Webb conducted the business meeting. Aliza Yarden-Cummings, who is in charge of the Farmers Market at the Pocket Park, presented an introduction to sustainable gardening.

She suggested that everyone plant trees for shade and a diversity of plants for habitat of small wildlife and to use mulches and collect rainwater. Minimize the use of power tools and chemical fertilizer. Cover bare or weedy areas with cardboard or layers of newspaper. Earthworms (nightcrawlers) like both. They also aerate and fertilize the soil.

Other members present were Mary Andrews, Doris Baucom, Linda Buckner, Klaus Duncan, Sandra Kelly, Nancy and Lawrence Gillespie, Don Judd, Carolyn Patton, Yun Prater, Dan Spector, and Barbara Tucker.
