If you are looking for a new plant or have a question about gardening—then plan to stop by May Mart on Friday, May 13. The Chestertown Garden Club will hold its annual plant and bake sale from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Fountain Park in downtown Chestertown. The festive spring event helps to support the club’s activities plus efforts to maintain and beautify the town’s parks.
Spring annuals, perennials and shrubs, as well as specialty baked goods, vintage fashion accessories, “All Things Garden” and a “What Not Table” array will be offered for sale. Garden Club members will be on hand to provide information and advice on planting and plant care.
This year a charming white vintage garden bench with a cushion at a value of $200 will be offered through a raffle.
The club will also hold its popular “Picnic in the Park” gourmet box lunch as part of May Mart. Lunches, priced at $8.50, may be ordered in advance by contacting Holly Bramble at 410-778-1857 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Chestertown Garden Club was founded more than 75 years ago to bring together women with a mutual interest in gardening. Today, the civic-minded group has an active membership of approximately 30 women. Members contribute labor, time and resources to improve and maintain the Chestertown’s public spaces. The CGC provides informative meetings that are open to the public, local flower shows and pilgrimages to area gardens. The club also decorates Fountain Park for the Christmas season, and works with Kent School on special gardening projects and Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s, Inc. for their summer program.
