ELDORADO -- With Spring finally underway, the Eldorado Garden Study Club started the season with its first meeting of the year.
The club kicked off the year March 21 with the theme "A Garden for All Seasons."
Mike Gwaltney of Jerry's Berries in Eldorado spoke to the group about a variety of gardening topics to help members get their spring gardening off to a good start.
President Marilyn Ellis shared with the group that the club recently has earned the Club Achievement Award and the Club Horticulture Award from the Garden Clubs of Illinois, with whom the Eldorado Club is affiliated.
