Gardeners Gild - July/August 2024

The Gardeners Gild's Plant Booth at the Arden Fair

It's time to start preparing for the annual Gardeners Gild Plant Booth at the Arden Fair, to be held this year on Saturday, August 31st. The Gardeners Gild seeks contributions of potted plants, bulbs, and any garden-related items, etc. Donations should be dropped off on Friday, August 30th, by 7:00 pm, at the Gild Hall.  Kindly provide an identification label stating what kind of plant you have donated, how big it will grow, and what its care requirements are. We also need volunteers on Friday, August 30th, to price plants, pick up plants and help in the set up of the plant booth, and on Saturday, August 31st, to work shifts in the plant booth from 9 am - 6 pm.

If you are willing to volunteer at the plant booth on Fair day, or to help with set up on Friday, please contact Barbara Conway 302-547-6406.

Thank you!

Dear Gardeners Gild Members and Friends...
It has been incredibly rewarding to get to know so many of you in person during these past years.  I learned so much about the Ardens, about gardening, and we've had lots of fun activities, but the time has come for me to hand over the Gardeners Gild's leadership.  As some of you will recall,  during our party in June 2023 I announced that I am looking for someone to take over; well, the right person has just come along! 

Elaine Schmerling
has accepted to lead the Gardeners Gild; she really needs no introduction; she is the most active gardener (in her own garden and out in the community as well!)  I've met here in the Ardens.  She is knowledgeable and  passionate about everything plant-related.  She has boundless energy, and so many great ideas for our Gild. I can hardly wait to see what she has in mind for us!

FYI - I will continue distributing the plugs we had ordered in the Spring.

Thank you for all the support!
