Mantua – The Mantua Village Garden Club will again hold its annual plant sale, in conjunction with the Mantua Farmer’s Market, this coming Saturday, May 28, at Christ Lutheran Church, on Rt. 44. Due to the extremely soggy weather last Saturday, the club still has a nice variety of plants to sell, along with the other vendors who attended the sale last weekend. The sale will run from 9 am, to 1:00 pm. Come and get some great deals!!
The club also did its part in celebrating Arbor Day. A tree was planted on the Memorial Walkway, heading up to Crestwood High School.
The Mantua Village Garden Club gathered at Mantua Park, for its May meeting, on Monday May 23. A work meeting was planned, which was kicked off with a hearty brown bag picnic lunch, and a brief meeting. After the picnic lunch the members split into 5 groups to clean up, and plant flowers, in the 5 garden beds that the MVGC maintains. The beds included are 1) Hillside Cemetary, 2) Crestwood High School sign, on Rt.44, 3) the Mayor’s Corner, 4) the Canada Rd. sign, and 5) Buchert Park.
Our next meeting will be held on Monday, June 6th. Foster Brown, from Cleveland Metro Parks, will talk about the beautiful roadside flowers we “zoom by”, and never notice. We welcome anyone who is interested, to come and join us for the day, or join our warm & friendly group.
