Boot Camp for the Senses

A lecture by Tovah Martin

Glean the full benefits of your garden. In connection with her upcoming book, A Garden in Every Sense and Season, Tovah Martin coaches her audiences on conscientiously plugging in and coming to their senses. Submerge and explore the garden experience for all it’s worth. Learn to garden with eyes wide open, ears to the ground, and hands outstretched. Subtleties that you never noticed before will be uncovered and defined. Learn innovative ideas for attracting birds with berries, and pollinators with fodder flowers while repelling nibblers. The goal? To get the most from your landscape on all levels.

The Roxbury Bridgewater Garden Club will be hosting this lecture on Thursday, October 10 at St. Mark’s Parish Hall, 5 Main Street South, Bridgewater, Connecticut. Time is 11 am, admission is $10 and light refreshments will be served. For additional information, please call 860-355-0167.

The Roxbury-Bridgewater Garden Club maintains the gardens and planters on the Bridgewater Green, the Diebold Garden in Roxbury, the Friendship Garden near Burnham School, the Weller’s Bridge Garden, the Mead’s Corner Garden, the Roxbury Town Hall and Pavilion, both town’s Veteran’s Memorial plantings, the flag pole plantings at the Bridgewater fire house, the Hut Hill Garden and the garden at the corner of Route 67 and 317. Our volunteers constantly work in these gardens planting, weeding and pruning.

Our club is also very active in our communities, providing programs in the schools and the senior centers. We give annual scholarships and provide community education on a variety of conservation and gardening topics through our lectures and Plant Mart education table. At the holiday season we decorate each town’s public buildings with wreaths.
