Memorial Garden September 2016 Work Party

On Monday, September 12, 2016, the Memorial Garden group had a productive time. They worked on the Garden and had a short meeting while working. During this meeting they did the following:

  • A small amount of deadheading
  • Cleaning out some branches that had snapped off the apple tree
  • Digging up some dead plants
  • Doing some raking
  • Picking apples, of which there are an abundance this year

The pond looks quite good after the recent cleaning.

Jane Sprague came with the Memorial Garden plan. She did some tweaking on the plan to more accurately reflect where things are. The hope is, with the help of the parish, to mark where people are buried in the Garden. This will be an ongoing project.

October Memorial Garden Meeting on October 3

The next work party and meeting will be a week early, on October 3.  There will be lots to do at the October meeting:

  • Leaves will have begun to fall.
  • Hydrangeas will need to be deadheaded and pruned.
  • The usual tasks will need to happen.

There are only 2 weeks for garden vigilance before the October meeting. Contact know if you would like to do one of them.

The Memorial Garden at Church of the Redeemer

The Memorial Garden at the Church of the Redeemer is a sacred gathering place for the community.

  • We remember those who have gone before us.
  • We reflect on the beauty of God’s creation.
  • We celebrate the church’s community life today.

This is a stewardship position, maintaining the Memorial Garden at monthly work parties. They maintain and enhance the Garden keeping with a basic design approved by the Vestry and the Parish.

All are invited to participate. No gardening expertise is required. You only need an interest in the Garden and a willingness to be involved.

We have some truly skilled and knowledgeable gardeners. There are some occasional fund raising projects. These funds are used to enhance the Garden.
