Makati Garden Club Visits Forest Club
The Makati Garden Club visited Forest Club last 27 March 2007. Wawel Mercado toured the group of about 12 ladies around Forest Club's gardens and gave a short talk on the beginnings of Forest Club, the importance of planting dipterocarp trees, the advantages of vermiculture and our efforts at preserving the stone carving tradition of Laguna.
The Makati Garden Club contingent was led by its President Ma. Luisa Perez-Rubio and included Ninit Paterno, Ging delos Reyes, Ruby Diaz-Roa, Maureen Sung, Ningning Manahan, among others.
In gratitude, the Makati Garden Club presented the Forest Club with a rare yellow tabebuia flowering tree seedling.
The Makati Garden Club office is located at Recoletos Street corner EDSA and Ayala Avenue in Makati. The club holds monthly meetings such as garden tours, out of town trips, luncheons, special lectures and fund raising activities. For more information, email Newleaf@indanet.com
