A word from our Continuing Education Committee

I posted this info in the right hand side column to stay there, under 'Garden Volunteers' info, but here is a post to draw your attention to it, as I got the message from our Continuing Education Committee, which reads as follows:

Hi, Aleks!
Here's the list of dates and topics for 2011. I've included  separate category for Field Trips because Dewey got in touch some months ago in order to avoid conflict with our Saturday programs as  has happened in the last two years. 
Others have volunteered to lead field trips and their names may be added.  I should mention that the cont . ed. committee regards field trips as a separate type of activity most effectively arranged by the volunteer leader,  with publicity help from the committee (and appreciative support)!
Thanks for posting!  Please let me know if there are any problems.
 More info will follow shortly on the Feb. 17 programs.
