My name is Alison Johnson and I am coPresident of Northwest Perennial Alliance. I am looking to promote NPA with a presentation on ‘Virtual Tours of NPA Gardens 2020” to fellow garden groups via Zoom.
I am happy to present this talk free, to any of your garden group as its membership renewal time fro NPA and we are hoping to attract new members. I know you can appreciate that with so many of the usual promotional avenues closed to us we are hoping to get the word out about our non-profit group to other garden groups.
The talk is a PowerPoint and video clips of the gardens that were open to NPA members this year, because of the pandemic we videoed and made then made available via Vimeo to our members.
I then complied a few favorite videos added some plant picks and recommendations from each garden and created an entertaining talk that I think your members will really enjoy and then want to join NPA!
(I have given this talk to 2 garden clubs around Seattle)
Please feel free to forward this, thank you.
The best way to can contact me is email email@example.com

Joseph Arthur Dahlbom Jr. July 29,1936 – June 27, 2020 Life memberships in WSFGC, Pacific Region, and NGC. Joe was a member of WSFGC for over 50 years. He served as Director of the Evergreen District and president of several garden clubs in that district. He was in ELWD’s Eastside Garden Club and then joined Willowmoor garden club so he could remain in Elawags. He was an active participant in design and arrangers clubs in Evergreen, Greater Seattle, and East Lake Washington districts. He entered designs in other districts as well as in state shows. His living room walls were covered with ribbons and awards from the fair in Monroe Washington. Longtime the ELWD members may remember “Men at Work” and the “Joe Show” programs for our district. He will be missed but remembered for his great designs and his infectious laugh. Joe requested that any donations in his honor go to: ALL ABOARD ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES ACTIVITY PROGRAM, Founded by Marie Waller (Betty Arnold’s daughter – both long time garden club members active in WSFGC, Evergreen and ELWD districts) https://www.allaboardwa.org/ Because of present times and conditions any gathering will be postponed for now.
