January/February 2019 Update

The Garden is entering it’s second year of development.  It goes without saying that we have had one of the wettest winters on record and there seems to be no let up with the unusual wet pattern.  Much of the work planned during the winter months was postponed due to the adverse weather but those activities and others will be underway soon.

The Advisory Board met in early January to set goals for the new year.  Our focus will move from foundational plantings to perennials, ground covers, garden structures, path development and the installation of a water garden and stream in the Japanese garden.

Work schedules will be posted on our website as soon as we have favorable weather.  We welcome anyone who would like to volunteer any amount of time on the many upcoming projects.  The photo below taken on February 23rd shows major flooding in the garden following a 6.25 inch rain event.
