Bancroft Horticultural Society
Previous to our pandemic, The Bancroft Horticultural Society usually had an informative guest speaker or workshop taking place monthly as well as member competitions. Our president would go over any business news after we had had a break for snacks and an opportunity to catch up with our fellow gardeners.
Our society has not found a way to carry on membership meetings throughout 2020 and it is difficult for several of our members to consider doing any large group computer sharing.
Several members did contribute hours to maintaining community gardens in 2020 and there was a fall plant sale that occurred at the home of two of our members with social distancing and wearing masks. A money donation box was used.
We do have a Facebook group and encourage everyone to visit this group for the time being. Hopefully at some point in 2021 we will be able to meet again.
