Join Margret’s Hat Garden Club

May 11, 2012

Looking for ways to help beautify Waterville Valley?  Granted, it’s already pretty stunning, but one can never have enough flowers!

Join Margret’s Hat Garden Club, a cooperative effort of the Town of Waterville Valley Recreation Department and the Margret & H.A. Rey Center.

Help honor Margret and her love of gardening by volunteering to adopt one of nine flowerbeds located around Waterville Valley.  Volunteers will commit to maintain their flowerbed throughout the growing season.  Responsibilities include selecting and planting perennials and annuals, weeding, deadheading, and mulching the flowerbed, and putting the garden to bed at the end of the growing season.  Stone Property Management has graciously offered to water the flowerbeds throughout the summer.  Funds to purchase plants and mulch have been generously contributed by the Town of Waterville Valley.  Garden tools will be available for volunteers at both the Rec. Dept. and the Rey Center.

Volunteers can sign-up and select their garden plot at Community Clean-Up Day on May 11 or at Garden Volunteer Day on May 27.

Once volunteers have signed up for their plot, they will be given an order form and budget for selecting the flowers they wish to plant.  The goal is to have all plants and mulch arrive by June 8 and for the plots to be planted by June 29.

Learn more by calling or visiting Audrey Eisenhauer at the Rey Center, 603-236-3308, or Rachel Gasowski at the Rec. Dept., 603-236-4695.
