Mayan Garden Club May Meeting

The Mayan Garden Club May meeting was big success –despite the blackout – and a real treat at Oscar and Lalo’s Restaurant. We had a tour of their medicinal plant gardens and swap of plants to which the restaurant contributed.  We enjoyed margaritas, mojitos, ceviche and other fresh foods then we had our First Annual Plant Swap.

Everyone traded Plants: We had plants, herbs, trees and exotic hard to find plants and flowers. Everyone went home with all the plants they wanted.  The restaurant gave us Coconut trees, Chaya plants, Papaya trees, maguey and Aloe Vera plants.

Then we had a tour of the restaurant gardens and learned the medicinal benefits of the following plants: Purple Maguey, Chechen, Chaka, Coconut tree,   Messy Plant Despinada, Chit, Chaya, Nopal, Banana, Papaya, Lemon, Pineapple.

Thank you to Virginia Gonzalez and to MGC member, Colleen, for planning this meeting [email protected] [email protected]
