WALPOLE, N.H. – Helping people grow is at the heart of what we do at Parks Place Community Resource Center. In 2011, we began hosting an annual gardening event reflective of this theme and we are pleased to welcome back Henry Homeyer as guest speaker of our 8th annual Garden Event. Homeyer is a life-long organic gardener who writes a weekly gardening column that appears in 12 newspapers around New England and will be discussing invasive plants: what are they, how to get rid of them, and what to replace them with.
Our 2018 event will take place on April 22, at the picturesque Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, N.H. from 2-5 p.m. and will include a silent auction, a presentation on “trending houseplants” by Halladay’s Flowers and Harvest Barn, a variety of gifts by Grafton Grown Lavender Products, shrubs and plants for sale from Morning Star Perennials & Nursery, and a Master Gardener’s exhibit. Admission is by donation and all proceeds benefit Parks Place.
Sponsors of this year’s event include: Burtco, Cota & Cota, Mascoma Savings Bank, MJS Lawncare, Savings Bank of Walpole, Silver Forest of Vermont, Vermont Country Store, and Whitney Blake Company.
Parks Place brings health and human services directly to residents of the Greater Falls Community, services that would otherwise be inaccessible. We are home to over 40 agencies, which provide individuals and families the opportunity to make lasting, positive change in their lives. Thank you for support of this event.
