Our Speakers for the January Meeting

Kay Aldrich

Gave a demonstration on Growing Gourds and Making Art

When Kay first moved to Shingletown she was working on stained glass and was involved with a local co-op gift gallery. Some friends of hers started working with gourds and Kay was hooked. She has been growing and designing gourds ever since.

Mary Chambers of Native Moon Designs

Gave a demonstration on how she makes walking sticks.

Mary has been making walking sticks for about 12 years. She is Native American and incorporates that into her designs. 

The following is an excerpt from The Miners Gazette, the Eaton Gift Behrens-Eaton Museum Newsletter from September 2020

The Redding Wonderland Garden Club on St. Patrick’s Day braved a cold, cloudy morning to view the garden they funded in the yard here at Behrens-Eaton home. Diana Gifford-Tuggle, President of the club, and the membership planned this outing for last year and we finally made it happen despite covid.
The garden, on the south side of the gazebo, is planted with annuals and perennials for continuous bloom. In the center, under a native dogwood tree is the plaque honoring Velma Crain, who was a member and a master gardener. The plaque is mounted on an antique piece of white marble displayed under the dogwood tree. A special guest was Velma’s daughter, Shirley and her husband.

Take time to enjoy the view!
