The Inland Empire Gardeners

Newsletter / Calendar

The Inland Empire Gardeners meet the first Thursday of every month (except December or when the meeting night falls on a major holiday) at 6:30pm at CenterPlace, 2426 N Discovery Pl, Spokane Valley--across from the YMCA in Mirabeau Park. 

The next TIEG meeting is Thursday, June 7, 2018.


Our June speaker will be Cathi Lamoreux and her presentation is “Let Nature by Nature.”  The larger picture about why urban wildlife gardens matter to both humans and animals is not well addressed. Monocultures (like lawns) and expanses of nonporous surfaces (like roads and parking lots) impact the natural world. That not only affects plants and animals, but also our physical and mental health. Environmental stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment. Ecologically inspired plantings can flourish with a fraction of the material and labor required for conventional plantings. Gardeners are not powerless to affect change. We can act as the lynchpin between the wilderness and the urban setting. Join Cathi Lamoreux, a native of the northwest and a Master Gardener since 2008, as she helps us understand that we are not powerless to affect change. Please note our previously scheduled speaker cancelled due to illness.


“Anyone who thinks gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year, for gardening begins in January with the dream.” - Josephine Nuese
