Garden Cleanup – May 24, 2017
A great group of workers spent the morning weeding & mulching the Children’s Garden at the Museum at Van Hoosen Farm. Special thanks to the help from the staff — Dean and the two young men who work on the grounds in the summer. The new Herb Spiral is now installed and ready to be planted.

Planting Day — June 1, 2016
Members contributed to the beauty of our community with a day of planting annuals at locations in the area. Some plants went into the ground and others into containers at the Rochester Public Library, the Clothes Closet, the Rochester Community House, Thelma Spencer Park, the Veterans Memorial, and the gardens at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm. Our largest project, The Children’s Garden at Van Hoosen Farm, has colorful flowers, vegetables and herbs throughout, although currently we are struggling to stay ahead of a very hungry and determined groundhog!!
