The daffodils are just waiting for a bit of warmer weather to brighten the landscape and the camellias are cheerfully popping out all over the Weymouth gardens!
Spring cleaning on your to-do list? You may be able to donate some of those gardening items...
We all end up with garden décor, extra tools, unused pots, extra watering cans, bird feeders and miscellaneous landscaping items that we no longer use. We pull out shrubs to redesign, decide that perennial ground-covering is spreading rather farther than we expected, have a small tree that just needs to go. Instead of throwing these items out, consider donating them to the Weymouth Center Dirt Gardeners. All will be used to either propagate or in future fundraisers to benefit the Weymouth gardens and grounds. Any garden-related items you no longer need, that are in good condition, including bird baths and even houseplants you no longer need nor want, are welcome.
So, as you start considering your lawn and garden spring cleaning, bear in mind that the Dirt Gardeners collect perennials, shrubs, small trees, as well as ground-coverings and will happily relieve you of your unwanted plantings! They even provide pots if needed, and some limited help in digging if you find it's too much to do on your own. Please be certain to make arrangements in advance for any donation drop-offs by contacting Kathy Luckhaus at (910-986-3009) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Items and plantings will be placed at the rear of the Weymouth Center, near the garage area, entering through the original Vermont entrance and driving up to the back of the Boyd House. Kathy can also make arrangements for pots, digging help and large-item delivery.
The Weymouth gardens will soon be splendid!
The Dirt Gardeners are Weymouth’s volunteer lawn and garden corps. They are a major force in the maintenance of the beautiful 26-acre campus.
Interested in volunteering some time? No experience needed and on-the-job training! Contact Kathy at (910-986-3009) or via email at email@example.com.
