The annual plant sale is our major fundraiser for the year. Proceeds help to pay for our civic projects, program speakers, conservation efforts and much more. The plant sale benefits garden club members and the community alike. The club needs your help to make this a success.
We are looking for plant donations and volunteers to help man the tables at the sale, prep the plants prior to the sale, help dig and pot plants, and setup/cleanup at the sale.
We especially need donations!!! Any time volunteered or item donated is greatly appreciated.

Not all insects are bad for the garden. In fact, we rely on many to rid us of other unwanted invaders. This presentation describes some of the common beneficial and pest insects that gardeners encounter in New England. We will take a look their habits and their lifecycles as we discuss how their presence affects the success of our garden year.
