Camden Garden Club puts Village Green to bed
Camden — Through spring and summer, into the fall, the wide borders wrapping the Camden village green on two sides are weeded, raked, and pruned by the Camden Garden Club.
With a final push before winter planned for Nov. 4, most of the trimming, edging, and hauling away to compost was accomplished Oct. 11.
Led by the club’s Village Green chairman, Lynn Snider, the committee cut back daylilies, rescued flagstones from encroaching grass, routed weeds from the base of the War Memorial, and whisked away the early fallen leaves.
Other civic projects the Camden Garden Club performs every year include the trademark hanging red geranium baskets on lamp posts in summer and lighted wreaths in winter, the Camden Street Trees Program, and planting beds and boxes all over.
Camden is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc. New members are always welcome. More information at camdengardenclub.com.
