Another community garden is sprouting at the Hillcrest Retirement Community. Gardeners will tend their own plots or raised beds.Part of the garden will include a shady nook for visiting and quiet reflection. Lovely shade plants for the area at the far end by the woods have been set aside by the Scarborough Garden Club, following their annual plant sale at the historic Hunnewell House earlier this Spring.
Members of the garden club and the neighborhood will also be tending a couple of spots designated for 'planting a row for the hungry' to send fresh veggies and herbs to the Scarborough Food Pantry.
Thanks to the Desfosses family, a sturdy new fence is being installed by the B.B. Bussiere Fence Co. It will allow light and air to circulate, while keeping the critters out (we hope!) Compost from Benson's Farm will nourish the plants; wood chips from Jordan's Farm will make it easier to walk and should help keep the weeds down.
