President’s Message

Bravo to the outgoing executive board and officers of Seaside Gardeners! You have all done an outstanding job of serving the club by conducting meetings and programs, heading up committees, and keeping finances on track.

As the incoming President my primary goal is to continue to keep SSG going in a positive direction with the support of a very capable and professional slate of officers that the nominating committee has spent months recruiting. They include:

Alida Alberts- Vice President

Debbie Gill- Secretary

Krista Blair- Treasurer

In addition, the members of the eight Standing Committees and Other Committees are listed in your program book. Hopefully with every member contributing in their own unique way we can continue to have a club where we enjoy each other’s company while pursuing common gardening interests. I see SSG as a supportive learning environment that is welcoming and inclusive to all members.

I have been a member of the club since the fall of 2019, serving as the Vice President the past 2 years and Wreath Cochair for the past 4 years. I was also a member of the Duxbury Community Garden Club for 7 years in my younger days. Coming from a health care/ educational background I bring a teamwork/ problem solving/ goal-oriented perspective to our group and hope my leadership skills will continue to grow within my role as President.

 

I know we can continue our mission(purpose) to increase members knowledge of “gardening, nature, horticulture, and related interests” in new and creative ways. I invite each of you to pledge to continue to grow our commitments to the community.

Deb Lehman, President

I’d like to share this poem by Mary Oliver, one of my favorite poets. My dad, who was an avid vegetable and rose grower, was “the gardener” who inspired my love of gardening early on.

 

The Gardener by Mary Oliver

Have I lived enough?

Have I loved enough?

Have I considered Right Action enough, have I come to any conclusion?

Have I experienced happiness with sufficient gratitude?

Have I endured loneliness with grace?

I say this, or perhaps I'm just thinking it.

Actually, I probably think too much.

Then I step out into the garden, where the gardener, who is said to be a simple man, is tending his children, the roses.
