Members of the Joyful Bloomer Garden Club will travel to Bidwell Training Center in Pittsburgh's Manchester neighborhood next week to learn about the plants grown and maintained by students.

The trip at 10 a.m. Wednesday will include a tour of the technical school, a spokeswoman said. Lunch will be prepared and served by the school's culinary arts department.

Non-members are welcome to attend, but should call (724) 600-9042. Entry to Bidwell is free, but the lunch will cost $10. The group will be meeting at Bidwell, located at 1815 Metropolitan St. in Pittsburgh.

Regular meetings of the Joyful Bloomers are held at 10 a.m. on the first Wednesday of every month, except July, at the conference room of Kane Regional Center McKeesport, 100 Ninth Ave., Downtown. The club is a member of District VII of the Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania.

Interested gardeners can contact Sharon Bryner at ksbryner@comcast.net.
