Chilton County Master Gardeners’ first fundraiser of 2016 was a booth at Antiques in the Garden held at Petals from the Past on April 22-23rd. There were many handmade crafts including hod baskets, hypertufa planters, vine wreaths, gardening towels, planter chairs, birdhouses, and many other interesting items. This was our first time to use this venue as a fundraiser, and I think it’s a keeper! The weather turned out to be beautiful, even though several members got drenched setting up in a downpour!
Many of the Master Gardener members have been busy on Wednesday’s at Sondra Henley’s Craft Day. She has been hosting this in her garage for several weeks in preparation for the first fundraiser for 2016. Antiques in the Garden will be held at Petals from the Past in Jemison April 22 and 23, 2016.
