Sep 12, 2019   -  Monthly Meeting:    “Seed, Grow, Love, Write” with John Markowski

We are kicking the year off with something different!  Member Barbara L. found John’s blog while searching on ornamental grass design, and became hooked.   She read his book “Seed, Grow, Love, Write” and found so much she could relate to, and laughed the whole way through.
From Amazon: “Part self help, part a hilarious jaunt through one writer's life, Seed, Grow, Love, Write will leave every reader laughing, crying and, as author John Markowski says, "chewing" on something different. Grow with Markowski as the "Family Leaf Management Program" lures him into gardening, a love further strengthened by "The Markowski Mulch," a grand event that happened each July.”
John Markowski is the author of the award-winning "Obsessive Neurotic Gardener" blog, which includes 1500-plus posts since its inception in 2010. John published his first book "Perennials Through the Seasons" in 2017. John's gardens have been featured a number of times on the Fine Gardening website. He is currently a featured writer on Medium where he writes about such non-gardening topics as family, parenting, aging, and baseball. Many of his articles have been featured on other sites including Scary Mommy, Fatherly, The Good Men Project, and Huffington Post. John currently lives in rural Hunterdon County, New Jersey, with his college sweetheart wife, two children, and their irreplaceable rescue mutt, Mia.

John will have books available for purchase.
