PORTSMOUTH – An upcoming meeting of the Piscataqua Garden Club will have a very green theme. The May 13 event will include presentations from three business partners of the Green Alliance, the Portsmouth organization that connects green-driven consumers with more than 100 green-minded businesses. The unique meeting was organized by the conservation committee of the Piscataqua Garden Club and will take place at Service Credit Union in Portsmouth. The three Green Alliance presenters will be Site Structures, EcoTech Pest Control Services, and Green Maids.

The next Piscataqua Garden Club meeting will focus on greener, healthier lawns and gardens.
“This is part of our mission as an organization,” said Deb Chag, co-chair of the club’s conservation committee. The Piscataqua Garden Club was founded in 1926 and boasts a membership ranging from Biddeford, Maine to Hampton, New Hampshire. The Green Alliance presentations, Chag explained, will be an environmental education platform to better inform members on conservation issues.

“We have eight meetings a year and often have some eclectic speakers,” Chag said. “But we haven’t done anything like this before.”
