2024 Garden Guild plant sale is Saturday, May 11 from 8:30 to 11:30 am
The St. Jude’s Garden Guild now comprises some 30 members. We meet mostly on Thursday mornings, or afternoons, according to the season, with a common goal of maintaining these beautiful gardens – keeping them colourful and cared for, and ever conscious of the changing seasons. After each garden session we engage in fellowship with ‘coffee & cookies’ ; where we enjoy the real friendship of our fellow volunteers.
The Garden Guild was formed in 1983, when the vision of developing a dandelion-strewed field into beautiful gardens was discussed – and the work began. It is an on-going project…The Guild is self-funding, with the chief source of income from the Annual Plant Sale in Mid-May; we are also delighted to welcome donations for memorial plantings and towards the general maintenance of the Garden; as the annual service bills for the sprinkler system, tree maintenance, and winter kill plant replacement are considerable.
We welcome additional members – there is a great spirit amongst the team; enthusiasm, and a wonderful sense of achievement with those who enjoy being part of the ever-changing scene. This is a very special area – a living heritage for all to walk, sit and relax, or reflect in the Glory of the Garden.
