The Garden Club of Brookfield held a Garden Therapy session at the Brookfield Senior Center on June 7th. The theme for the day was Fairy/Gnome Gardens and the team laid out a spread of delights for the seniors to create their own gardens. The emphasis was using many objects from nature to put in the gardens. Rocks, pebbles, fresh moss for grass, dried yarrow and fresh jade plants and sedum for trees, shells, and tree bark for benches were some of the things that were used. There were huts made of bark and pinecones and some of the seniors brought their own fairies to put in the gardens. Fun was had by all. Each and every garden was unique! Thank you, Garden Therapy Committee, for all your work.
National Garden Clubs has issued its annual proclamation designating June 5 through June 11 as National Garden Week. The proclamation calls out and acknowledges the importance of gardening and the wonderful contributions that all gardeners make. Last year, to celebrate National Garden Week, the Garden Club of Brookfield took you on a virtual tour of member gardens. This year we invite you to our in-person Garden Tour Day on Saturday, July 9. Visit six gardens in town and then come to the Museum Garden for our Plant Show-off and our Garden Boutique. Help us celebrate our sixty years of gardening in Brookfield. See our Garden Tour page on this website for more details and information about how to get tickets.
