We just received some more photos from the June 10 Hayward Gardens trip. Thank you, Mary Salmon, for sharing these pictures!
On the morning of June 13, twelve ladies and one dog braved the heat for a walking tour of the seven civic gardens in the village. The stroll was both enjoyable and educational, as many members do not know where all the gardens are.
The Membership Committee, Jane Martin and M.J. Bachman, organized the tour. Joan O’Brien, Civic Gardens Coordinator, also went along.
Below are photos taken by Jane and Joan. Unfortunately, they forgot to take a picture at Moulton’s Oval, which was the first stop.
On June, 10 the garden club took its first-ever Saturday field trip! The destination was Hayward Gardens in Putney, VT, home of acclaimed garden writer Gordon Hayward. A big thank you goes out to trip planner extraordinaire Jan Madigan who coordinated the visit.
You can view photos of the trip, taken by Karen Woodbury’s daughter, Laura. (This link takes you to Google Photos.)
An Amherst citizen has graciously offered an ongoing supply of horse manure to garden club members. Contact her directly if you are interested.
- Horse manure: approximately 4 yards (ongoing supply)
- Horses eat only organic high quality feed. No pesticides
- Horses graze in a dry field
- Easy pick up at end of driveway. Just need a truck and shovels.
