Led by Camille DeVito, members weeded, trimmed and mulched the rose garden at Crofton Library. The garden is located to the right of the main entrance. Employees and volunteers are greeted by this garden as they enter and exit the building.
Thank you to Camille for organizing the garden clean-up and to members Maria-Elena Bodnar, Linda Childs, Beverly Frye, Becky Hogan, Lois Nichols, Carol Schoenfeld and Gail Schulz for helping. Thank you also to Camille's husband Frank for helping with this project.
Project Chair Camille DeVito held a fall clean-up at the Blue Star Memorial Garden located at Crofton Library. CVGC members cut back the Black-eyed Susans and other perennial plants and raked the garden. Leaves were left in the garden to act as a natural mulch.
Thank you to the following members for helping with the garden maintenance: Camille DeVito, JoAnn Cook, Denise Frey, Beverly Frye, Harriet and Warren Kiilehua, Don Pogue and Diane Stovel.
Crofton Village Garden Club members participated in a Garden Crawl where members spent approximately 20 minutes at each garden doing maintenance. The first stop was Crofton Library where members worked on the Blue Star Memorial Garden, Native Garden and Pollinator Garden. Members then traveled to Linthicum Walks, Swann Park, the Village Green Memorial Garden and the Peace Garden located at Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church.
Thank you to Nancy Percivall (Project Chair, Linthicum Walks) for organizing the event and to Frank DeVito (spouse to Camille DeVito, Project Chair, Blue Star Memorial Garden), Claudia West (Project Chair, Swann Park), Lois Nichols, Rosa Johnson, Diane Stovel, Lynn Pollock, Maria-Elena Bodnar (Project Chair, Peace Garden), Don Pogue (Project Chair, Native Garden) and Beverly Frye for participating in the event.

Crofton Village Garden Club members weed the Pollinator Garden located at Crofton Library. Chickweed, an aggressive garden weed capable of producing up to 15,000 seeds per plant, took over the center section of the garden choking out many of the pollinator plants. Carol Votteler, Project Chair, will work on a plan to restore that area of the garden.
The Pollinator Garden not only encourages the population of pollinators, but it also serves as an educational component to demonstrate to community members the importance of the pollinators for our environment.
Thank you to Margo Antonelli, Camille DeVito, Denise Frey, Beverly Frye, Cathy Gallagher (CVGC President), Glenna Kidd, Nancy Percivall, Don Pogue and Carol Votteler for helping with the garden.
