GILFORD — The Opechee Garden Club will be presenting a program, "My Cutting Garden", by Audrey Vargish, Master Gardener, and current President of the Sandown Garden Club, in Sandown on Monday, May 4 at 1 p.m. at the Gilford Community Church.
Vargish's power point presentation will focus on selecting the appropriate site for a garden, preparing the beds, choosing the appropriate plants for the site conditions, maintaining the garden, and finally enjoying the fresh cut flowers from the garden. This process is one that Audrey and her husband, George, experienced when they moved from New Jersey to New Hampshire in 2008, when they transformed the plain landscape of their new home into an "array of garden rooms and beds".
Hospitality Chairs, Sandy Stafford and Cindy Anderson, and their committee, Ann Woglom, Joni Stover, Simone Routhier, Nancy Leroy, Ginnie Johnson, Joyce Howe, Gloria Dublin, and Virginia West will provide refreshments and table decorations.
Opechee Garden Club is a member of the New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs, and the National Garden Club. The club welcomes new members.

HOLDERNESS — The Holderness Conservation Commission has designated the last week of April and the first week of May as a town wide cleanup time. Individual commissioners will be picking up streets in the vicinity of their homes (Mt. Prospect, Seven Pines, part of Rt.113, Owl Brook, and Shepherd Hill Road) and ask town residents to do likewise on the roadsides near their homes. Assisting the Commission will be students from Holderness School and Holderness Central School. If you come across objects too large, call the Town Office and we'll schedule a pickup of them.
When you have time, take a peek at the Elm Trees that the Commission has planted in town. Before the snow came, the Commission with the assistance of Doug McLane of Plymouth, fertilized and mulched the tree at the Central School. It is the largest and the oldest of the trees planted in town. The other two trees are at the amphitheater adjacent to the Holderness Historical Society, They will be mulched and fertilized this spring. The Commission would also like to mention that NH State Archeologist will be doing a dig this summer in the vicinity of the Historical Society Building. Contact Doug McLane for more information on that activity.
