As visitors came and went from Town Hall this morning, they had to step around garden club members who were feverishly planting 20 winter-hardy boxwood shrubs, weeding, edging, and spreading three yards of bark mulch. Helping hands included John Bement, Elise Lutz, Maureen and Jim Minner, Joan O’Brien, Mary Salmon, and Sandy Walker.
The club thanks John Cochran of Amherst Garden Center for procuring and delivering the shrubs to Town Hall, and Val LaPlante of Amherst Earth Products for the quick turnaround mulch delivery. What service!
The historic horse trough and front step containers were planted earlier by the Town Hall garden team (Mary Salmon, Sandy Walker, and Barbara Williams) with a winning combination of green, purple, and white.
