Westlake Garden Club fall speaker series

Founded in 1963, the Westlake Garden Club is dedicated to fostering beauty in the garden and home, and promoting horticultural education, civic beauty and community conservation. Regular Garden Club meetings are held at Westlake Porter Public Library on the third Wednesday of the month at 11:30 a.m. (March through December).

As the growing season begins to wind down, the Garden Club will host an evening series of presentations, open to the public, beginning with the Western Reserve Land Conservancy on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 7 p.m. at Westlake Porter Public Library. Vice President and Director of Thriving Communities, Jim Rokakis, will discuss the efforts of the WRLC in our region to support working farms and preserve vibrant natural resources alongside healthy, thriving cities.

The second presentation will be held Oct. 16 on the topic of Medical Marijuana. Dr. Dvora Nelson of Lakewood Medical Clinic will talk about the benefits of marijuana therapy for several common diseases on Ohio’s list of qualifying conditions.

Closing out the series on Nov. 20 will be a presentation on "Owls of Ohio" by Jim Tomko, president of the Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland.
