Note from Our Presidents
In 2021, SGC will celebrate it's 65th anniversary. This season we'd like to reflect on the incredible past accomplishments of our membership. This year we honor those who have been involved with SGC for 20 years or more and should note some members have been with us for 50 years. We feel inspired by and grateful to the women who have come before us and continue on with us now and in the future in the garden.
Our programs this season range from a look to the past with an examination of real housewives of the 18th century, the kind of industrious women who might have tended the Allen House garden, an introduction to America's first female landscape architect, Beatrix Jones Farrand, and presentations from local woman owned companies on the latest trends in gardening.
With great enthusiasm we are instituting a new Days of Service campaign for our members to gather and garden together throughout the seasons to make light work of our numerous garden tasks. This will be a wonderful way for newer members to learn from the veterans and for us all to share in new ideas, time honored techniques and above all - the joys of gardening.
We encourage you to spread the word of the good things happening when you are part of the Shrewsbury Garden Club.
Judy Bonanno and Rachel Weston
