Presidents’ Message 2021

Hello, Countryside Garden Club Members,

As I think back on the past year, I am so grateful our club was able to continue many of our programs and activities during a global and local pandemic. We are creative in so many ways – keeping up our friendships and connections as well as our gardens, sitting in a big circle for socially distant yet socially connected meetings, and adding beauty to our public spaces in Hockessin.

Now I am excited to be serving with Jill as co-president of the club and looking forward to a great schedule of programs for the coming year. We will have lots of fun exploring projects and opportunities to grow our club. We welcome new members and new ways to help our community connect to the natural world.


-Linda Powell, Co-President

Greetings, Countryside Garden Club Members,

I am pleased to be working with Linda to lead Countryside in the coming year. Two heads are better than one, and I look forward to the challenge and partnership. And, with the knowledge and experience of the Countryside gang, I anticipate a fun and successful tenure!

This coming season should be easier for everyone as things get back to “normal”. Surely, we’re all hoping we have seen the last of Covid and all this difficult time – and hopefully, we can now go forward without constraint!

Looking ahead to lots of laughter, learning, and new horticultural challenges, and time spent nurturing nature and each other in the months to come.

-Jill Beringer, Co-President
