We are especially pleased that we partnered with the Town in bringing a 20 foot Norway Spruce tree called Hope, to grace the grounds of Town Hall. The tree was donated by Michelle Seaborn from her farm. On November 29th, 2018, we participated in the first lighting of the Town Tree. It is a special Christmas gift that will stand tall and proud for all to see and enjoy. As this year's President of the Grimsby Garden Club, I encourage all the volunteers and members to embrace the message of our newest town symbol, Hope, and look forward to another productive and successful year of encouraging and nurturing the beauty of our town, Grimsby.
We are busy with activities for the annual Plant Sale, a perennial favourite, May 11th 9:00am till sold out. It allows us to offer an abundance of plant varieties to enhance and beautify the gardens of Grimsby.
We plan to again participate in this year's Home and Garden and Farmer's Market enabling us to reach out to everyone in town.
Our Garden Tour this year is Saturday, July 13th rain or shine.
Our Trillium Program recognizes the outstanding gardens of our town and awards a special thanks to those inveterate gardeners who lovingly care for the gardens that beautify Grimsby. Nominations are open from May 24 to June 24, 2019.
