Our club only meets during the off season on the fourth Thursday of the month, between October and May at Carmel City Hall just north of Indianapolis, Indiana. We kick-off our meeting season with a member pot luck at the Woodland Hills Clubhouse in Carmel and we conclude with a plant distribution meeting in May typically hosted at a member’s home. Our club hosts guest hybridizers from around the country where we get to see their programs and an opportunity to participate in an auction of their plants. Our members also participate in a member driven meeting where we shine a spotlight on our programs and gardens as well as share our knowledge with one another. An optional picnic in the summer at a member’s home allows us to see others’ gardens on a rotating basis.
