Crofton Village Garden Club held its second Garden Crawl in spite of the chilly temperature. Members spent approximately 20 minutes at each garden doing maintenance. They began at Crofton Library with the Blue Star Memorial Garden, the Native Garden and the Pollinator Garden and then traveled to Linthicum Walks.
Thank you to Nancy Percivall (Project Chair, Linthicum Walks) for organizing the event and to members Rosa Johnson, Denise Frey, Lauren Toomey, and Cathy Gallagher and to Mai Sweetman, a prospective member of the club.
Marcia Richard (pictured right) held a Seed Sharing & Plant Cuttings event at her house. Members were invited to share seeds or plant cuttings, as well as their knowledge of the plants. Marcia shared Zinnea seeds that she collected from her plants – a first for her in collecting seeds from the flower heads. She also had Sun coleus cuttings. Members Nancy Percivall, Kathy Puhak, Lauren Toomey, Margo Antonelli, and Cathy Gallagher (not pictured) also participated in the event.
