The last few winters have certainly taken their toll on plants in many of our gardens and St. Jude’s gardens have not been exempt. Because of the winter kill many plants have needed replacing. Our main fund raiser for the Garden Guild is the plant sale the second Saturday in May. It helps with the purchase of new plants and shrubs and also supports the ongoing maintenance of the gardens. We are so appreciative of the financial donations that come from parishioners and others that help support and preserve the gardens. The Guild is grateful for the memorial contributions from family and friends of loved ones who have passed away as they provide additional plants that also beautify the gardens.
So many people over the years have found delight just sitting on one of the many benches in the gardens on a warm summer’s day or simply walking across the lawns on their way through. Brides have had their pictures taken for posterity, photographers have practised their art with three seasons of flowers and the neighbourhood has benefited from a beautiful space thanks to the generosity of others and the dedicated volunteers.
The Garden Guild is thankful for past support and would welcome donations payable to St. Jude’s Garden Guild (a tax receipt will be issued).
