Hi Kim – our big auction is coming up on the 13th. Thanks so much for your ongoing support!
The Seaside Garden Club’s Plant Auction will take place on Tuesday, May 13th at the Manchester Community Center. Doors open for a preview at 6:00 pm and the Auction begins promptly at 7:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served. Don’t miss the chance to purchase the garden club’s prized perennials and beautiful one of a kind garden art. Donations from many local businesses will be auctioned off as well plants. Ryan & Wood Distilleries, Neptune’s Harvest, Utopia Farms, Wolf Hill, Marshall’s Farm Stand, Chapman’s Florist, and Sea Meadow Gifts are among the generous businesses that have donated their goods to the auction. Our members have been hard at work dividing their tried and true perennial plants and creating garden art. Support the Seaside Garden Club and come home with great plants and beautiful planters full of flowers that will grace your home with beauty!
Plant donations are welcome. Donations can be dropped off at the Community Center (please leave them outside at side entrance closest to the parking lot) any time on Monday the 12th or Tuesday the 13th. Please dig up generous clumps (the more exotic plant types the better!) you mark with plant name and care instructions. This is the Seaside Garden Club’s only fund raiser and 100% of the proceeds go to fund our terrific programs and community service projects throughout the year.
The Seaside Garden Club meets the second Tuesday of every month, September through June at the Manchester Community Center. Membership is open to all. We already have a great line up of programs for next year. The club will kick off our program next year with a 45 year anniversary celebration, followed by workshops, demonstrations and interesting speakers. Visit our blog at: Seaside Garden Club
