Softer Side of Soil-Away: Gardening
Soil-Away employee, Debbie Hurley, has been part of the Amherst Garden Club for the past several years. The mission of the club is to provide educational resources and networking opportunities for members to promote the love of gardening, civic landscaping and environmental responsibility. The members have a wonderful time gardening together and being involved in the beautification of local private areas. All are welcome to join the club.
On Saturday May 10th, The Annual Plant Sale took place at the Wilkins Elementary School in Amherst, NH. People came from near and far to celebrate this wonderful spring tradition. Thousands of perennials dug from local gardens were offered at this sale. Proceeds from the event benefit community projects, college scholarships for high school students, and club member class fees for horticulture endeavors.
