Butterfly Garden – Initiated by a Garden Club of Woodbridge member who mentored a group of Senior Girl Scouts, the club helped develop and plant a butterfly garden as part of the Learning Garden at the farm.
Farm Residence Foundation Plantings – The Garden Club of Woodbridge designed, donated and planted the garden around the foundation of the farmhouse residence.
Daffodils – The Garden Club of Woodbridge donated and planted daffodils along the border of the farm Learning Garden with the children who attended the Massaro Farm’s Family Fun Day.
Once a month members of the Garden Club of Woodbridge lead a dozen seniors in a horticultural activity appropriate to the season. The Horticultural Therapy program is a popular feature among the Memory Unit residents who always delight in the plant materials they handle and enjoy with the GCW volunteers. From floral arrangements in cold weather to flowers and vegetables in the outdoor raised beds during warm weather, Horticultural Therapy brings happy memories from nature back into the seniors’ lives.
The Garden Club of Woodbridge has helped several boy scouts in our community fulfill the requirements for becoming an Eagle Scout. Together with an Eagle Scout candidate we designed and planted the Gazebo Garden in the center of town, a ‘secret garden’ at the Senior Center and designed and built an arbor, bench and fence at the Colonial Herb Garden at the Darling House.
