Club trips are an enjoyable part of the Home Garden Club's activities. Seeing some of the splendid gardens in the area, and enjoying the company of fellow enthusiasts, makes these visits memorable for months to come.
Here are pictures from some recent trips:
Stonecrop Gardens Bus Trip - June 2023
The Home Garden Club of Morristown celebrated the first day of summer 2023 with a fundraiser bus trip to Stonecrop Gardens in Silver Spring, NY, perched in the Hudson River Highlands. Many local gardeners joined the club to enjoy a relaxing day in nature, touring woodland gardens, alpine gardens, water gardens, stone beds and English gardens as well as the opportunity to purchase many of the unusual plants seen on the tour.
Proceeds from the fundraiser support Project Outreach, maintaining the urns at Acorn Hall, Holiday wreath donations and arrangements for local area needs.
Paxson Hill Farm
In June, the club traveled to Paxson Hill Farm in beautiful New Hope, PA. The farm is situated on a mountaintop, not far from the Delaware river.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by a proud, white peacock who had no qualms about strutting it’s stuff. We were then led on a guided tour given by the garden designer. The adventure took us over ponds and creeks, through formal gardens and whimsical places, and past hidden art treasures.
Lavender Farm in Milford, New Jersey
Members of the Garden Club spent a beautiful day at Lavender Farm in Milford, New Jersey. We were lucky to have such a beautiful day to be outside. A docent gave a short talk on lavender, describing the various species in the field and how to collect it, and then invited us to cut as much of the lavender as we wanted.
Reeves Reed Arboretum
It was great to see many of you at the Reeves-Reed Arboretum despite the nippy Spring weather as we toured the grounds and lunched together.
