News from Des Fleurs

We had so much fun at “An Evening with Jennifer Jewell!”

Sept. 23, 2022 – An evening with Jennifer Jewell, award winning garden journalist and host of nationally syndicated public radio program and podcast, Cultivating Place – described as being the On Being for gardeners and nature lovers.

“Our human engagement with plants connects us to the natural world, to our communities and to ourselves on powerful intellectual, physical and spiritual levels.”  Words of Jennifer Jewell taken from her book “The Earth in her Hands”.  Jennifer reminded us that as gardeners we can make a difference in our world simply by making good gardening decisions and by paying attention to our environment.  The evening event was sponsored by the Des Fleurs Garden Club of Oxford, Miami University, and Institute for Food, Institute for the Environment & Sustainability, and Ecology Research Center, Oxford Chamber of Commerce, Oxford Seniors, Shademakers Garden Center and Cincinnati Public Radio.  We had an amazing response for this event – THANK YOU to all of you wonderful gardeners!
