The Arboretum and Rose Hill will be closed every Saturday in July. Please visit us Monday-Friday from 8:30-4:30. We’ll also be closed on Friday, July 3rd for the holiday.
Camp 2015 was picture perfect!
Tag, you’re it!
Under Trustee Shawn Davis’ leadership, we have taken on a plant identification, tagging, and data collection project for the Arboretum. We’ll be adding plant labels in the fall, if not sooner, so that visitors know more about the plantings here. Long-range plans include mapping them and putting the collection data base on our web site.
Two members of Team Troxell, Linda Jorgenson and Susie Troxell, tagged our 100th plant in the garden yesterday. Lockerly’s Executive Director offered lunch to the team that tagged the 100th plant, so Team Troxell will have a chance to spend time together over a nice meal soon.

Last month artist Christi Conner Tate taught an enthusiastic group of adults and children how to paintboth metal buckets and terracotta pots to use as garden containers. The
containers are painted in stages because each layer of paint requires some drying time.
One goal of the workshop was to teach participants something they can do again at home. Some of our garden volunteers left with all kinds of ideas about future projects they’d like to do at home on their own.
Some workshop participants were keenly interested in painting rain barrels. If you are interested in doing that, or have suggestions on other workshops and classes you’d enjoy, email our Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 478.452.2112.
If you want to lead a class that would be great! Don’t be shy about sharing your skills with people who want to learn.
