Perennial Planters
PERENNIAL PLANTER CHAIRS: Dorothy Burt  and Kim Cavarretta

The Perennial Planters Group offers the opportunity, in a smaller group setting, to learn more about perennial gardening, as well as offering workshops for members to create their own unique landscape art objects.  

During colder months, meetings are held at a member's home for informal presentations/gardening tips.  In  warmer months, members visit  gardens - day trips to wonderful local gardens and longer day trips to special places of interest.
Perennial Planters also assist with the club's Annual Perennial Plant Sale.   Perennials are dug, potted, labeled, displayed and sold to raise funds for the garden club's civic beautification activities.  For more info, click on    Events
