Spring is here and so is the Garden Club of Woodbridge Civic Beautification group. The Civic Beautification group maintains the gardens at the Woodbridge Library, the herb garden at the Darling House, the Massaro butterfly garden, and the Adella Baldwin Stuart Garden at the corner of Meetinghouse Lane and Center Road. Each Thursday from April through the end of October the gardeners enjoy getting their hands in the dirt, and develop friendships through a shared goal.
The April 13 meeting of the Garden Club of Woodbridge featured Steve Frances, master beekeeper and banker, via Zoom. Steve’s topics included threats to honey bees, how to manage healthy colonies, how to support pollinators and what plants provide pollen to honey bees.
Garden Club members are looking forward to the first in-person meeting in a year on June 8. Members will participate in a plant exchange, and enjoy a delicious lunch in the backyard of a member’s home.
We welcome the novice as well as the accomplished gardener. Our programs promote interest in gardening activities of all kinds, including floral design, flower shows, horticultural therapy, bird life and conservation activities. If interested in becoming a member, please contact Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
