The Gardens Received Plenty of Attention

A take on the Square Foot Gardening from the 80’s
It is producing nicely. This is a photo from 3 weeks ago.
Veggies garden club members started from seed.
Children’s books are also featured. One of the Trustees makes the cutouts to go with the book.
The Sensory Garden took shape in the donated canoe.
A cutting garden keeps a vase full inside the library to greet visitors.
The native landscape is also loving all the heavy rains.

So with our $1000.00 grant from the Nation Garden Club “Plant America” award we have exceeded even our expectations.

We no sooner had all the gardens planted when we were told by our town we were not to water it, as they posted a water ban. It had been dry but we were never in a drought. The town always has issues as I am sure others do but seriously no even/odd days offered to the towns people or businesses, no heads up or plan for our landscape worth over $40,000.00 when you add in all the volunteer labor it took to put it into place.

So up against the wall a volunteer and long standing member of a town family, one who’s last name is also a part of of our libraries name, offered us an unused 1500 gal. tank and one of the garden club members as well as the lead on the library trustees purchased a pump to hang inside the tank and the cord to run it as well as hoses and wands to water this huge landscape. All of us were determined to not let all of the efforts put into this landscape just shrivel up and die.

The landscape was divided into 3 sections and volunteers signed up to not only water but also to keep the area weeded, which was a bigger task in the end as once we were set up to water all it did was rain, for the rest of the month of June and most of July, it could hardly fail but the weeds are relentless as most gardeners know and we had used the smother method(cardboard) and a thick layer of wood chips, for which I am grateful.

We have been enjoying lettuce, peppers herbs and squash but the tomatoes are looking amazing though still green. We also have pumpkins growing and a few ears of corn that are in the square foot garden and already have silks the corn may not be any good but it showed all who stopped by what was possible in a garden of their own.


Happy gardening!

We Have Been Busy

The Epping Garden Club here in NH has been busy weeding and watering the new landscape at our library along with a few other volunteers from town.

The Children’s Garden was added with the help of a #PLANTAMERICA Grant in the amount of $1000.00. We are grateful.

We also have our own gardens to tend to also with many challenges when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

The town can only offer us water from the sewerage plant and that is not allowed in the food garden for sure and is sketchy at best for a gorgeous, 95% native plant landscape put in just a month ago.

Now we will look for holding tanks and rain barrels to care for them when the weather doesn’t. As gardeners we roll with what we are dealt.

Who Needs A Lawn

This project has been a few years in the making and will have many a tongue wagging, as doing away with a lawn at a municipal building, along Main Street USA but for me it is the perfect location for a radical unveiling
of really what we need to see more of.

Saving green space is a wonderful thing when it is managed properly and here in this town we have a land trust gathering up as much land as they can at a time when many plots of family owned lands are being torn up for housing and more strip malls, so maybe when this is done without much thought might they not use better practices?

Such as not paving paradise to put up a parking lot? What about clean water? How do we maintain water for life if you are constantly adding more lawns alongside all of these lots while using so many chemicals to keep them pristine never mind the runoff into our beautiful rivers and streams.

Maybe it is time to hold those in charge and their governing boards as well. We must demand as taxpayers more well thought out spaces and not just ones designed for their bottom lines but for all who call this place home.

Wild things like bees and beneficial insects are more important than another gas station and in this town of 7,000 we have 6 if I counted correctly.

We also have a Lowes and a Super Walmart and a Tractor Supply as well. They have huge asphalt spaces that could be offset by spaces such as this one here at our library. Yes it takes effort and out of the box thinking but on the other hand there will be a remarkable change that happens not only for beneficial insects but for the people near these natural spaces.

Wood chips get such a bad rap with comments such as “anything will be better than woodchips” . We need to educate the masses on their benefits and the biggest one I see personally is maintaining the moisture level in the soil as well as keeping weeds at bay if your layer is thick enough or you have used a layer of cardboard to first smother an area.

Yes this is a new way of thinking as well as gardening but we need spaces like this to see a real change.

The talk these days is all about Pollinator Pathways but this spot will be a mecca for them. In just 3 years this landscape will be stunning, how many in town will have patience?

The landscape design was donated by a tax paying resident and then installed by her landscape company along with volunteers in her field who worked hard in 85F heat with the help of others from Library Trustees, Epping Garden Club, Friends of the Library members and so much help from Charlie and Sandy Goodspeed who worked hard to get this building built then spent 40+ hrs. volunteering their time as well as seeing the project to its end. We could never have done this without them.

The Epping Garden Club has received a Check for $1000.00 from the National Garden Club for use in our Children’s garden and another $300.00 from Exeter Area Garden Club to one of our members who is also a librarian here at Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library.

Come by and watch the garden grow as well as a Community!

See Epping Garden Club Facebook page for many photos of this huge undertaking.

Sensory Herb Gardens for Special Needs Children — The Herb Society of America Blog

By Candace Riddle Ever since Beatrix Potter wrote The Tale of Peter Rabbit, children and gardens have had a special friendship. That friendship is even stronger between children with special needs and special gardens called “sensory gardens.”  The difference between a sensory garden and a “regular” garden is the human factor— regular display gardens are […]

Pansy Fundraiser

The Epping Garden Club will once again offer “Pansy Bowls” for sale. This will help with our Civic Beautification projects we do here in town and it is always our first fundraiser of the year, just as spring approaches.

In our garden at the Safety Complex and as well as our three corners, we have bulbs that come up first and from there it changes with our perennials taking over, as we look to always have a variety plants in bloom through fall.

These are NOT wildflower gardens, they are more traditional in nature having bulbs, roses, hosta, daylilies, grasses and other perennials.

In our white self-watering containers, which line the Main Street area downtown and as well as the ones on our corners, we need to buy fresh soil when the pansies go in and also when we swap them out for more of a summertime display which runs from Memorial Day through mid September.

We will once again swap out the summer feel for a more traditional autumn one, using a mix of mums, asters and cabbage that we also offer during our Fall Plant Sale.

Keeping a garden can be costly as you know if you do landscaping in your yard. With us being a small group of volunteers we could not do it without holding fundraisers(plant sales) and from those who shop with us.

We offer only the best NH grown plants. Why not give us a try and see for yourself and help us in the process to make this town look just a little more loved.

Pansy Bowls are selling for $15.00 each or 2 bowls for $25.00
Flats of Pansies (6 six packs of one color) $18.00 for those doing window boxes and garden borders.

To place your order or to donate to our garden club, here in Epping NH USA, Email us here : eppinggardenclub@gmail.com


Thanks for your support!
