The first meeting for the Barnesville Garden Club will be held on Wednesday, April 19 at the Barnesville Library Annex on North Chestnut Street at 7:30 p.m.

Shelley Rockwell, owner of The Flower Gardens in Barnesville, said the club is for people who love plants and want to learn more about them. Information on landscaping and basic horticulture will be provided. There are no dues or obligations.

The focus of the club will be determined by its members, and the purpose is to have fun while gaining knowledge about plants. Rockwell said she hopes to have speakers, and meetings will include garden projects, plants swaps, and possible field trips. Refreshments will be served. A meeting date and time for future meetings will be chosen at the first meeting. For more information, call Rockwell at (740) 425-1939.
