Shrewsbury, NJ -- Spring is here and the Shrewsbury Garden Club (SGC) is welcoming the new growing season with a variety of informative workshops, programs & events, all of which are open to the public.
Just in time for Mother's Day, SGC will host its ever-popular Gardener's Market Saturday, May 12 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the old Broker's 3 parking lot located directly across from the Grove. In addition to a variety of hanging plants and planted gift baskets, shoppers will be able to select from an array of locally grown perennials and shrubs. Experienced master gardeners and garden club members will be on hand to assist with selecting the right plant for sun or shade. All proceeds from the sale support the planting and maintenance of several SGC-sponsored projects, including the Allen House Herb Garden, Patriot's Isle and the 9/11 Memorial Gazebo.
Also in May, on Tuesday, May 15, the SGC will host a trip to Cherry Grove Farms in Lawrenceville, NJ, a 400-acre sustainable, diversified farm that produces some of the region's finest artisanal cheeses, while at the same time, respecting animals and the environment. The trip will include a one-hour tour of the farm's organic pasture and its cheese-making operations, lunch and additional time to shop the Farm Store. Guests are welcome.
