To the News Enterprise:
This is the seventh year of existence of the Ski Bowl Garden. It has been a labor of love for so many people in Johnsburg. A special thank you goes to Marjolaine Arsenault and Patty Warrington who helped so much in the design and formation of the garden. I would also like to thank the local gardeners that adopted and cared for a small garden especially Dorothy Swensen because of her extra help and care for the whole garden including watering. Mary Goddard and Anita Abrams have been wonderful, especially when the Youth Works children come to work. Sally Heidrich helped keep the paper work on the memorials organized (whew). The Master Gardeners of Warren County have also lent a hand.
The garden is supported by money that we receive as memorial contributions in memory of loved ones. We just planted two trees in memory of Bill Heidrich and Donald Walp.
Our big fundraiser is coming up May 24, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., when we have our garden swap and sale of perennials. It is a fun, inexpensive way to start a garden or enhance the one you have.
Everyone is welcome to visit the garden at any time. It is a wonderful place to take a walk through or just sit and relax.
We are always looking for volunteers. If you have some spare time to do some weeding or can help us water on a regular schedule, that would be wonderful.
Come visit, the crocus are up and the daffodils will be blooming soon. The garden is coming alive.
