Butterfly Meadow Cleanup - Saturday, April 13th 11am- 2pm

It’s Spring cleanup and mulching time at the Butterfly Meadow. There are some leaves and branches from the fall, a few happy weeds and ornamental grasses that need to be cut back. In general, the garden is in pretty good shape. Not all the perennials are up yet; we hope most of them will make it back after the long cold winter soon and that many of them will make it to our plant sale next month.

Barbara Monahan will be working at the meadow on next Saturday, April 13th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. With your help we can get the work done quickly.Please RSVP to Paula Jones if you can help even for just an hour or two.

Please bring gloves, clippers, a hand shovel or weeder, and a bucket for debris if you can. We also need some wheel barrows.
Thanks so very much. We need your help. Again, please RSVP so we know who is coming to help.

The Greenslet Cup-- an IGC Tradition

Marion Swan writes in her History of the Ipswich Garden Club
"At the 1933 March meeting Mrs. Greenslet donated an 'old French cup to be used
 in the nosegay competition throughout the summer.'  The cup was to be 'held in turn
 by the various members' but exactly how the competitions would be held is unclear. 
Of course the Greenslet Cup continues to be part of our club tradition to this day.”

This year’s theme is “A-Tisket, a-Tasket, a bouquet in a basket.” 
Bring your happy entry to our Annual Meeting on Saturday, April 6th at 2pm.
