Seaside Garden Club’s First Meeting

Our new season will kick off on September 11 with “Confessions of a Seed Snatcher” presented by Marie Patrice Masse. Marie, an enthusiastic gardener and nature lover, has collected seeds for many years and more often than not can be found tending her 4500 square foot organic flower and vegetable garden at the Stow Community Garden. Her presentation will include a slideshow and lecture. It is a humorous and insightful journey of discovery into the world of seed saving from seed biology and politics, to seed quirkiness and adaptability. Attendees will learn how to save seeds from their gardens and enjoy entertaining stories of finding seeds in unusual places. Following the slideshow/lecture there will be an optional hands – on seed gathering from a large collection of flower heads, seed stalks, and pods. Beautiful photographs and entertaining story-telling promise to make this presentation a delight. Guests are welcome, $5 fee.

The Seaside Garden Club is a group of fun, active, civic-minded and hands-on gardeners. We welcome all types of gardeners from beginners to experienced… there is always something to learn and share. We invite you to become a member of our club and enjoy our monthly programs which feature interesting guest speakers and creative workshops.

We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, September through June, at the Manchester Community Center, located at 40 Harbor Point, Manchester-by-the-Sea. Social time begins with light refreshments at 7:00 pm, followed by the program at 7:30 pm. Program dates are subject to change. Visit our website at
