Local author and columnist Jane Fishman was the featured speaker at the March 13 meeting of the Richmond Hill Garden Club. Fishman is known for sharing her gardening, traveling adventures and her love for helping others.
Fishman is the author of several books: "The Dirt on Jane", "The Woman Who Saved An Island”, “The Story of Sandy West and Ossabaw Island", "I Grew It My Way, How Not to Garden", and "Everyone's Gotta Be Somewhere, Savannah Columns."
Club officials said Fishman has been a past speaker and was the inspiration for its annual April Plant Swap happening on April 27 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at JF Gregory Park under the pavilion.
Fishman has a garden in downtown Savannah and has been growing things there for nearly 20 years. Depending on the season, you will find a multitude of vegetables in her garden: kale, broccoli, yellow squash, zucchini, sugar cane, collard greens, etc.
The Richmond Hill Garden Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. at the Wetlands Center in Richmond Hill. The group welcomes visitors and new members to its meetings.
