STEVENSVILLE — Carrie Engel of Valley View Farms will speak at the Kent Island Garden Club meeting at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 12, at the Kent Island Library. The topic of her talk will be “Plant, Trees and Shrubs for the Environment.”
Engel is well known as the Greenhouse Manager at Valley View Farms in Hunt Valley, where she has worked since 1972. She appears with John Collins weekly on the WBAL “Sunday Gardener” show and on a Tuesday question and answer segment.
Over the years, she has developed extensive knowledge about the trees and shrubs which thrive on the Eastern Shore.
Engel enjoys writing, lecturing, photography, rooting for the Orioles and spending time with her extended family. Another hobby involves looking for what’s new in plants and gardening design when she travels.
The public is invited to hear Engel speak.
