On Friday, June 5, The Garden Club of Woodbridge will host Secret Gardens of Woodbridge, a one-day garden tour of eight beautiful and unique properties. The featured gardens include a few of historical significance, two of which are anchored by outstanding Notable Trees of Connecticut. Of these properties, one is extensively documented in the Smithsonian’s archives. A lovely sprawling pollinator garden filled with native plantings is also open for an inspiring visit. Other gardens include lovely water elements with sweeping lawns and flower beds, a peaceful Shakespeare Garden, various themed garden rooms, vegetable and kitchen gardens as well as rose gardens. The tour is rounded out by a spectacular and playful garden designed and tended to by a gifted and talented Master Gardener and State Flower Show Judge. The day promises to be enjoyable and inspiring for all.
The tour will be the major fundraiser for The Garden Club of Woodbridge. The club’s many civic activities include the upkeep of three gardens around town, a horticulture therapy program for memory impaired residents at Coachman Square, and support of activities at the Massaro Farm, the Woodbridge Library, and the Woodbridge Center, as well as an annual scholarship for an Amity High School graduate from Woodbridge. The Garden Club of Woodbridge has sixty-four members with a shared purpose to promote interest, education, and involvement in individual and civic gardening of all kinds including horticulture, floriculture, arrangement of flowers, bird life and conservation activities. New members are welcome.
