Flower Power, Tower Hill, 2016
The flower ladies of the Worcester Garden Club used their talents to create arrangements for the tables at the Tower Hill Gala, “Under the Harvest Moon,” held September 17. Requested by event chairs Susan Palatucci and Lisa McDonough and organized by Robin Whitney, the group happily made 26 arrangements. They were rewarded with a glass of champagne and a fun afternoon.
This is not the first time their talents were called upon. Susan and Lisa asked them to do the same thing for the Worcester Art Museum Gala in June.
Share the Excitement of a Pollinator Project
Who are the pollinators? Birds, bees, bats butterflies, moths, beetles other animals or the wind. Many of these pollinators are in trouble, mostly from environmental abuse.
An ad-hoc committee has been formed to explore the idea of a WGC project that would promote and protect pollinators and would ideally involve our entire membership while collaborating with other Worcester County institutions.
Several of our area organizations are already involved in pollinator projects so our first step is to explore just what everyone is planning and then hopefully fill in the gaps.
We discovered several wonderful resources including www.pollinator.org . It is wonderfully comprehensive and worth a visit.

- To educate the community in the art of gardening, in the science of horticulture and in the conservation of all our national and local resources;
- To encourage and develop civic planting throughout Worcester County.
