November Meeting 2022

Tuesday, November 8th, 2022

Monthly meeting at TCAT Dickson 740 Hwy 46S (across from Lowe’s): Add-a-dish meal at 6 pm. Business meeting at 6:30. Program begins at 7 pm. Members, former members, and adult guests are always welcome, so come see what we have going on!

Hannah Hollowell, Forest Health Program Specialist is our guest speaker this month.

My name is Hannah Hollowell and I work for the TN Department of Agriculture, Division of Forestry as the Forest Health Program Specialist. I help coordinate how we monitor and manage many of the pests and pathogens that threaten our forests here in Tennessee. I’m originally from northeast TN and enjoyed growing up in a beautiful area of the state with lots of forests and farms. I joined TDF this past fall as the forest health specialist, and have also gotten opportunities to share with others how important forestry and related natural resource management is. I love learning about the insects and other organisms present in our forests, and I enjoy getting to play a role in how we specifically manage insects or diseases that are threatening our forests. I also love sharing about these forest health threats with others to educate how we can all play a part in helping keep our Tennessee forests healthy, and how we can manage our forests for long-term sustainability.

From our featured speaker: Hannah Hollowell

Bernie Harris will also be presenting a short (15 minutes) feature on Lasagna Pots.

We will have a selection of perennials to give as prizes this month so pay attention to the dinner slideshow. (last month, it was mums)

We have some gorgeous perennials to give away this month – probably around 12 (there may be more) in quart or gallon size and one in 2-gallon size. This week is the time to plant – we are expecting more winter-like weather starting on Friday.

This is open to all attendees, but you must be present for the whole program to win.

Plant list:

Japanese Holly Fern 3x

Loropetalum 3x

Elderberry Black Beauty 2 gal 1x

Indian Hawthorne 2x

Azalea Encore 1 gal 3x

Hope to see you all there and good luck!
