The Durham-Middlefield Giving Garden continues to welcome weekly Saturday speakers from 11 a.m. to noon. We are still waiting for confirmation on our July 15 speaker, but be assured, you will enjoy an hour of congenial conversation and garden information with old and new friends.
On July 22, Allan and Nancy Poole will share information about honey and bees with a tour of the three hives Allan manages on the hill above the Giving Garden. Come and be amazed by some of nature’s busiest workers. Kids are welcome. On Aug. 5, Joy Starratt of Durham will demonstrate and help attendees create a pounded flower/herb/leaf craft. Joy will provide all materials but asks you to bring a small hammer if you have one.
These talks are free and open to everyone. Drinks are provided. Please bring your own chair and join us in a beautiful place tended entirely by volunteers and dedicated to advancing organic gardening and feeding hungry families locally.
And just maybe you would like to come a bit early …
While Wednesday work mornings seem to attract a nice group of volunteers, Saturday mornings, from 9 to 11, have been a bit sparse, and we welcome new or returning volunteers. No gardening experience necessary.
Our manager, Betsy St. John, knows exactly how to use everyone’s skills and will help you find a comfortable task.
Also, no commitment needed. Come when you can and enjoy the lovely garden and meet new and old friends. Call Betsy at 860-807-5242 if you have questions about volunteering.
