The New Haven Garden Club is scheduling its fall cleanup of the downtown garden Tuesday, Sept 11, from 4:00 P.M.

Residents of the community are invited to join garden club members in the cleanup project which is being coordinated by Carol Bell.  Please bring your own implements:  trowels, shovels, weeders, clippers, trimmers.  Plastic bags will be provided.

At its meeting on August 14 members and their guest speaker, Leslie Mahin, enjoyed a carry in salad supper. Following the supper, Ms Mahin, a Franklin County Master Gardener and Plant Specialist at Hillermann Nursery presented a program on new theories on tree irrigation management during periods of extreme drought; diseases and pests related to roses and raised gardens.

The New Haven Garden Club also welcomed two new members at this meeting:  Rose Hoerstkamp and Judith Weston.
