Dear Members and Garden Friends
For garden fun and garden know-how, wherever you live, please join us in our activities in the upcoming year.

MEETING: Wednesday, February 14, 9:30am
North DeKalb Cultural Center, Room 4

PROGRAM: 11:00am “Bulous Frogs and Their Friends: How
Georgia Amphibians Affect Our Future”
Linda May, Environmental Outreach
Coordinator, Ga Dept. of Natural Resources

Georgia is home to over 30 species of frogs and toads. Many are in danger of extinction. Linda May will explain the vital role played by amphibians as harbingers of climate change, pollution, and disease and she’ll tell us how to give these unique creatures a new lease on life. Linda has worked as an environmental educator for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division for over 22 years. She currently serves as Outreach Coordinator for the Nongame Conservation Section. Although she appreciates all critters, she has a particular interest in songbirds, frogs, backyard habitats, nature photography, and citizen science projects. Linda received a Wildlife Management degree from the University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and continues to learn through her curiosity of the natural world.

Go to the winter woods: listen there, look, watch, and the dead months will give you a subtler secret than any you have yet found in the forest. 
Fiona Macleod, Where the Forest Murmurs

He knows no winter, he who loves the soil,
For, stormy days, when he is free from toil,
He plans his summer crops, selects his seeds
From bright-paged catalogues for garden needs.
When looking out upon frost-silvered fields,
He visualizes autumn's golden yields;
He sees in snow and sleet and icy rain
Precious moisture for his early grain;
He hears spring-heralds in the storm's turmoil
He knows no winter, he who loves the soil."
Sudie Stuart Hager, He Knows No Winter

Why, what's the matter, That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?"
William Shakespeare,  Much Ado About Nothing

"The word February is believed to have derived from the name 'Februa' taken from the Roman 'Festival of Purification'.  The root 'februo' meaning to 'I purify by sacrifice'. As part of the seasonal calendar February is the time of the 'Ice Moon' according to Pagan beliefs, and the period described as the 'Moon of the Dark Red Calf' by Black Elk.  February has also been known as 'Sprout-kale' by the Anglo-Saxons in relation to the time the kale and cabbage was edible."
