We are kicking off our 87th year as a club here in Holliston! This year will be a little different – most of our meetings will take place over zoom, and many events have been unfortunately cancelled, such as our popular annual holiday floral event that we usually hold in November. However, you can still see us active in the community, maintaining various garden areas in town such as the Holliston Public Library garden.
Many of us have been spending lots of time in our own gardens this year. In a recent project, we have also been surveying our gardens to see what native plants we have, as well as trying to include more natives in our plantings. This is part of a state-wide effort by garden club members to plant gardens that are more beneficial to our environment.
We do hope that we will be able to meet and hold our regular events next year. While we wait, we remain thankful for our gardens that offer us a respite in these unusual and often challenging times.
Here’s to an interesting 87th year!
