“The glory of gardening: Hands in the dirt, Head in the sun, Heart with nature
To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body but the soul.”
– Alfred Austin
FINALLY, we’re able to start looking forward to planning, planting, and feeding our souls with a beautiful garden of flowers, herbs, and vegetables. Winter has passed and we’re ready to stick our hands in the dirt and our head in the sun and start creating a garden.
Luckily, an event is just around the corner that will help us do that very thing.
Saturday, May 5
9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Tewksbury Senior Center, 175 Chandler Street, Tewksbury
RAIN or SHINE
There you will find everything you need to join your hearts with nature, while supporting a very worthwhile cause:
? There will be a large variety of proven perennials, annuals, and herbs, all at bargain prices. Many of the perennials were dug from our own volunteer gardens. We also have annuals and herbs supplied by Griggs Farm in Billerica.
? We’re offering home and garden-themed raffle items, such as a beautiful succulent planter, a hand-made shoulder bag filled with toiletry items, a quilt, gift cards from various garden centers and many other goodies. Stay tuned for details in future posts.
? Decorative garden items will be on sale, such as a stainless steel gazing ball, bird feeders, watering can sculpture, artfully painted chair plant holders, stationary cards, slate garden signs and many other treasures.
? National Sharpening Company of Andover will be onsite to sharpen your gardening tools (such as shears, clipper blades, scissors and other gardening items), for a fee.
