HARVARD -- The Garden Club of Harvard will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Jan. 28. Guest speaker will be Julie McIntosh Shapiro.

Julie has worked as part of the horticultural staff at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University. Her visual work on the identification of seeds will allow her to make seeds the stars of this presentation. Learn the diagnostic traits of seeds and get a chance to observe, study and enjoy these sometimes overlooked but ubiquitous bundles of life.

The meeting will begin at 11:15 a.m. at Holy Trinity/St. Theresa Church and is open to the public. Lunch and a business meeting will precede the speaker.
