Last Saturday, a group of enthusiastic volunteers and members have joined a great day of work out at the grounds and gardens to clean up the debris and waste left over from the long winter. Many have brought along their families and even pets to have a work day outing surrounded by blooming tulips and other spring flowers. Bruce, Barbara and Mary Lou were there to serve the BBQ’s and drinks to the hardworking volunteers and members.
Thanks to Jane and other gardening volunteers for all the hard works in trimming, pruning and keeping the forever beauty of the Heritage Gardens. In the small greenhouses and plant nursery at the back of the Heritage Gardens, they have also spent days in seeding, growing and nourishing plants that will be put up for sale on the upcoming Annual Plant Sale to be held on the weekend of May 7 and 8, 2016.
