Merchantville Garden Club
The Merchantville Garden Club is organizing again and we would love for more people to be involved! Would you like to help? Or do you know someone who would? Every year we plant and maintain at various spots around town... Ever notice the planters throughout the down town, planters at town hall, the garden at the corner there, the boxes at the ends of the bike path, the Merchantville Circle garden, and in past years Morrissesy Park, (which I understand was planted this season by a gentleman named Steven Gillis and other volunteers... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!) Or perhaps you remember some spots where planting used to occur, like at the Community Center for which, so far, we don’t have the volunteers to continue. We would love to hear from people who are willing to help throughout the season... for initial planting and continued weeding and watering. The more people that help, the more enjoyable the process... And the finer our town.
Please respond back to me, or contact Agnes Madden at
If you or someone you know is interested!
Please feel free to forward this on, as I can think of many other friends in town but don’t have the e-mail addresses.
Thank you!! ...and Happy Spring! Rich Buckwalter
