90th Annual Garden Club of Ohio Convention
As Time Goes By …
We Celebrate Cincinnati
June 6-8, 2018
The GCO Convention this year will be held at the Embassy Suites Northeast here in Cincinnati. There will be great programs for each day’s sessions, Awards Luncheon, Flower Show Schedule, Job’s Tears and Lavender workshops, ‘pop-up’ shops for shopping, raffle tables, and much more! Detailed information and a registration form can be found HERE.
Garden to Table: Traditions and Innovation will feature rare illustrations of gardens and their bounty dating back to the 1600s; etchings of gardens, their design and those tending them; hand colored lithographs; botanical illustrations; and 19th and early 20th century seed catalogs. The exhibit will also showcase archival materials from the founding of the Civic Garden Center, which started with Victory Gardens in 1942. In a separate gallery at the Lloyd, a crowd sourced photo exhibition, “Gardeners Who Inspire,” will grow over the course of the exhibit’s run as the community shares photos, both historic and present day, alongside framed historic photographs of local farms that practice sustainable agriculture.
Experience the depth of the Lloyd Library's collection of botanical and horticultural material, April 6 through July 13.

This is the casserole served at the March Board Meeting. The recipe was requested by many, and here it is!
Notes: "...variations of this recipe: before cooking (during prep) you can add chunks of sourdough bread, diced chilies, salsa, and/or diced green onions. You can use maple or sage sausage in place of the regular sausage, if desired."
“I checked with my butcher about using goetta in place of the sausage. He said it should work, but suggested going light on the salt and pepper. There may already be enough in the goetta. Salt and pepper can be added at the table.”

At the November Board Meeting, Jan Johnson served board members a wonderful breakfast/brunch casserole. So many people requested the recipe, with upcoming holidays, and households full of company, we wanted to share it with the entire membership!
Those of you who attended the Federated Garden Clubs of Cincinnati and Vicinity meeting Friday, October 6, were able to enjoy all the delicious food that was prepared by the member of The Herb Society. One particular dish was a huge success – Caramel Corn made by Carol Colgate. She was kind enough to share her delicious recipe!
