On Saturday, November 23, the Rahway Garden Club arrived at the Merchants and Drovers to take care of the Fall Clean-Up of the garden they maintain on-site.
“We navigated quickly around garden. Within 1/2 hour, dead plant matter was cut, gathered, and moved beneath nearby shrub for birds to feast. Please notice that three large garbage can loads of dead plants is barely visible beneath a shrub – food for nature looks natural.
“Afterwards we enjoyed steaming hot snack of stewed apples and oatmeal with Deb. Israel had ice cream. Dave planned our next adventure, the trimming of low hanging branches.
“Janice may use some American Beauty berry bush limbs for decoration around M&D – outside only. Some cut limbs may also find there way to Rahway Arts District Park for decoration. Thanks to Janice for use of building and thanks to Dave Brown for use of his shears. “
Thanks so much to the Rahway Garden Club for all their work throughout the season to maintain our garden! The Rahway Garden Club meets on the third Thursday of the month at the Merchants and Drovers Tavern Museum, and all are invited.
