Loud Applause for the Garden Guild!
The Sotterley Garden Guild held the 14th Annual Plant Sale and Free Plant Exchange this past weekend and it was a tremendous success! Much thanks to the Garden Guild for making this happen, and to each and every one of the visitors who attended the event and purchased plants.
The Garden Guild does an incredible amount of work for this site.
Anyone who has visited and walked through the Colonial Revival Garden, has experienced the fruits of their dedication. Nurturers of nature, they lovingly put forth much effort, sweat, and care in making Sotterley an exquisitely beautiful place. If the reader has not yet had this experience, we welcome you to come and visit soon. It's a lovely time of year in the garden :)
The Garden Guild also plays a major part in Sotterley's two December events: Family Plantation Christmas and Sotterley Holiday Candlelight. For months in advance, they use items from the garden to create gorgeous wreaths, swags, kissing balls, ornaments, birdhouses, and more ... for purchase. The proceeds not only cover the costs of maintaining the garden, but are also used for special projects around the plantation.
