Plants Needed in Sunderland
In 2015, local gardeners donated plants to the new Sunderland Town Hall. The gardens have thrived and will even be a bonus stop on the Arlington Garden Tour in July. Colleen York is hoping to freshen them up in time for the tour, and is asking neighbors to pick up an extra plant or six pack to donate; full sun plants that don’t need a lot of watering are best. Colleen will be at the Town Hall on Saturday, June 9, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, or call 802-375-6513 for pick-up.
