All CWA Members are invited to join us on Monday, Feb 8th for our February virtual event.  Darlene Crosby ,our Program Co-Chair has arranged a very special guest speaker for you.  This program is free to all CWA Members only.

We will be presenting Judy Alleruzo, plant buyer for Al’s Garden & Home and popular co-host of Garden Time TV will present “Early Bloomers & Container Gardens: Preparing for Spring” — Can you believe it’s that time again?


Judy is currently the Perennial and Houseplant Buyer for Al’s Garden and Home as well as being the Co-Host of Garden Time TV since 2006.  Over 20 years ago Judy arrived in Oregon to visit friends in Canby on a glorious April day.  Having lived in Chicago all her life, she was awed by the colorful landscape in the month of April.  She was smitten!  She returned to Chicago, packed up, and moved to Oregon in September.  Needing a job, she walked into Al’s, then called Al’s Fruit & Shrub  where she was hired as a cashier.  Working for what was a small company at the time, she was able to learn many jobs including stocking, planning and buying perennials for the retail storers.  Ten years ago she also became the houseplant buyer for Al’s.  Judy’s two careers of buying and caring for plants at Al’s Garden & Home and talking about them on Garden Time is a great match as she loves all kinds of plants!

If any questions about how to partcipate, let Elaine Swyt at know and she should be able to help you join the virtual program if you need assistance.
