The Mocksville Garden Club held its first meeting of the 2020-2021 year on Oct. 1 via Zoom. 
It was a success with 16 members calling in.  Even a puppy and a baby dropped in to bring joy.

The next meeting will be held via Zoom on Nov. 5  at 7 p.m. with Kevin Campbell of Campbell Family Nursery in Harmony to discuss monarch butterflies. The meeting is free and open to the public. See the Mocksville Garden Club Facebook Page for the Zoom link. A business meeting will be held afterward.

Club members have been working on downtown planters (See photo at left), and thank the town for prepping the soil, acquiring the pansies and watering.

It’s fall, which means it’s time to buy greenery from club members.  Don’t have a favorite?  Then stop by the Mocksville Farmers Market on Wednesdays or call Becky Peters at (336) 287-1256 to place an order.  Greenery orders are due by Thursday, Nov. 19. Purchased greenery will be available for pickup on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 257 Wandering Lane from 8:30 a.m.-noon.  The fundraiser, helps fund a college scholarship to a Davie resident.
