The Wallace Creek Extension Education Club met Thursday, February 18, 2010 at the Rylander Library.
President Lynn Blankenship called the meeting to order. The roll call was answered to "What is your favorite cookbook?" The minutes were read from the January meeting. The treasurer's report was given. The council report was given. Some of the topics were: March 23 is Lunch and Learn at noon at the Civic Center with Allison Watkins; the program will be "Low Maintenance Landscapes." March 29th will be the Hamilton County Spring Fling. April 6 is the District TEEA meeting in San Angelo. The San Saba County CEA-FCS will hold meetings each Tuesday of March about Diabetes Health, with professional speakers; this is free to the public.
Carolyn McDowell gave the program on "Lasagna Gardening." Lasagna Gardening is layering newspaper or cardboard, mulch, grass clippings, weeds, food scraps (not fat), leaves, hay, coffee, tea bags, peat moss and shredded paper to form compost to grow your gardens or flower beds. This is composting items to have an enriched gardening space in raised beds. This is one way to recycle items we usually put into the trash.
Doris Cates served refreshments to Carolyn McDowell, Lynn Blankenship, Imogene Hawkins, Noma Fitzgerald, Marilyn Miller and Margie Osborn.
The next meeting will be March 18 with Marilyn Miller as hostess. Wallace Creek meets on the third Thursday of each month and invites everyone to attend.
