Members of the Milford Garden Club are eagerly preparing for their annual perennial plant and bake sale.
It will take place on Saturday, May 19th (rain or shine) beginning at 9:00 am on the grounds of the historic Community House, located on the corner of Broad and Harford Streets. The sale ends at 1:00 pm or when all plants are sold.
There will be a collection of perennials from their personal gardens, as well as some vegetable/herb offerings and other gardening related items. All types of perennial varieties are available for sun, shade, part sun, part shade. Gardeners will be available for questions and advice.
All proceeds go toward the continued beautification of Historic Milford Borough. We will accept cash or check with ID ONLY.
One week later, on Saturday, May 26th members will sponsor a Trash and Treasurer sale at the same location. They have spent the long, cold winter days cleaning out their closets, basements and attics for items that may prove interesting and useful to you. Everything is marked “to sell”.
Additionally, members will be available on an hourly basis beginning at 11:00 and ending at 2:00 to tour the medicinal garden at Remembrance Place (corner of Ann Street and Elderberry Alley-behind Stroyan’s Funeral Home). This is a joint project of the Milford Garden Club and Penn State Master Gardeners. Herbal medicine is the oldest form of healthcare and has been used by all cultures throughout history. The medicinal garden is divided into four sections dedicated to one system of the body: circulatory/respiratory, nervous, digestive and immune. Participants will be able to identify various plants and learn of their historical use as medicine. This program is free.
These are a not-to-be-missed opportunities to beautify your gardens, collect unusual and unique items, learn how plants can cure and support the Milford Garden Club. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org and www.milfordgardenclub.com.
