The group will also take a Garden tour during the month of May. For more information about the club, call (903)852-3897. Current members come in to meet, mingle and discuss from Athens, Canton, Wills Point and Dallas.My son had a really hard time settling in. And I had a really hard time too. The staff have been so accommodating and patient with us, I can't thank them enough. My son is vegan and they have offered to accommodate this and cook him separate meals.

They are open-minded and have taken my views on board in regards to the food products they are buying, like which plant milk to buy in order to avoid sugar/artificial sweeteners, chemicals, etc. I am amazed at their dedication to look after kids to the point that I wish I will get to a point in my own career to be this dedicated and happy with what I do.Blue Moon Gardens website (www.bluemoongardens.com) contains a plethora of information about all things ‘garden,’ including a spring to-do list, recipes, detailed information on planting, and how to add fragrance to your beds. This is also the place to keep up with the Gardens and subscribe to their e-letter or monthly newsletter. A listing of available workshops can also be found on the website, with minimal fees for a hands-on session for everything from creating a fairy garden, creating patio pots to even dying scarves.
