UPDATE ON MONTHLY
LECTURE SERIES & MEETINGS
Greetings OHS Members, gardening friends, and horticulture enthusiasts. Summer has arrived and now that we are in the month of June, we would normally be looking at our last OHS monthly meeting for the season. I am sad to report that, similar to recent months, the planned June meeting and social has been cancelled.
It seems so long ago since we have been together. I am sure that many of you share my disappointment that we have had to cancel all of our OHS meetings and activities since March due to the "social distancing, shelter-in-place, etc." guidelines provided by the CDC as a defense against this year's seemingly uncontrolled spread of the Covid-19 virus. Whether we followed mandatory guidelines or optional recommendations, this season's difficult decisions to cancel OHS activities in order to minimize person-to-person contact were given careful thought, and were made in consideration for the health and well-being of all of our members, family and friends.
Without the benefit of a crystal ball, I am hoping that we will all be able to benefit from the much-anticipated recovery, and that we will have a chance to see things begin to return to normal this by fall. We will provide updates on OHS activities as information is available.
Until we meet again, stay healthy and safe. Happy gardening!
Dave Edwards - Program Director

OKLAHOMA HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
The Oklahoma Horticultural Society encourages interest in horticulture in Oklahoma by sharing our knowledge of growing vegetables, fruits, flowers, trees and shrubs. We aquaint ourselves with the best plants and practices for our region by touring inspiring private and public gardens, hosting knowledgeable speakers and welcoming the public to these events.
OHS supports the future of horticulture by providing scholarships to students of the horticultural science degree programs in Oklahoma.
The OHS-supported gardening show airs weekly
