Upcoming Hooksett Garden Club programs for 2022.
The HGC and the Hooksett library will co-sponsor a film called “My Garden of a Thousand Bees” by acclaimed wildlife filmmaker Martin Dohrn. He turns his lenses on the surprising and spectacular bees living in his own urban garden in Bristol, England. This film, aired on PBS last year, highlights the crucial role pollinators play, and encourages viewers to consider planting wildflowers in their own backyards and communities to support pollinator habitats. Following the 1-hour film, Ron Trexel, working in his role as a UNH Extension Advanced Master Gardener, will answer questions from the audience. The film will be shown at 6:30pm on Wednesday June 22, and is free and open to the public. Social time from 6-6:30, movie followed by a business meeting. Please go to library website to sign up.
