Books and plants – a beautiful partnership! On Saturday, June 2, the Garden Club of Woodbridge and the Friends of the Woodbridge Library are pairing up. The Friends’ Annual Book Sale will be inside the Library and the Garden Club’s Plant Sale will be in the Old Firehouse Grove behind the Library. Buy a plant, buy a book – support your Town!
The Book Sale will be open to the general public on Friday, June 1, 10-5p.m., Saturday June 2, 10-5 p.m. and Monday, June 4, 10-5p.m. On Monday, a bag of books is $5. In addition, as a thank you, members of the Friends, Woodbridge town employees and teachers are invited to fill a shopping bag for free.
The Garden Club of Woodbridge fifth annual Plant Sale will be from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on June 2 in the Old Firehouse Grove and we are delighted that our sale coincides for the first time with the Library Annual Book Sale. The Club civic beautification activities include Circle Garden at the Library, the gardens flanking the main entrance door, the Adella Baldwin Stuart Garden at the corner of Meetinghouse Lane and Center Road, and the Secret Garden outside the Woodbridge Senior Center.
Garden Club members will be donating their own garden plants for this event. Inventory varies every year, but typically includes perennials for shade and sun, annuals, herbs, trees, grasses, and shrubs. The club’s Certified Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions.
Proceeds of the sale enable the Club to carry on our nonprofit activities, including civic beautification.
