The Garden Club of Orange recently helped children at Turkey Hill School 21st. Century, plant a Flower garden. The children learned about a plot plan with largest flowers in the center moving out to sides. Next, they soaked the seedlings in pots of water, dug holes large enough for the plants, and some fertilizer was added to each hole.
The children took turns planting and learning the names of each flower. Everything was given a good soaking because it was a beautiful, hot day. The children were very excited to get into the dirt and we hope they will see that the garden gets enough water while they are in school.
The Garden Club members hope to help plant flower bulbs in the fall. The club is a member of NGS, Inc, FGCCT, NER. For more information, call Joanne Friedrich 203-795-4266.
