To the Editor:

If you’ve been to the Greenwood Post Office recently or even just driven through Locke’s Mills village, you’ve probably noticed the attractive new garden on the grounds of the Greenwood Historical Society. In an effort spearheaded by tireless volunteer Betsey Foster, the Greenwood Conservation Commission has devoted many hours to planting a range of perennials, including peonies, daffodils, hyacinths, four kinds of iris, rhubarb, chives, and much more.

A few will bloom this year, and the garden will reach full maturity in three to five years. We thank Betsey very much for all of her hard work to help beautify the village. Thanks are also due to the many people who supplied free or discounted plants and supplies, to Ernie Nieberle for rototilling, and to Richard Wakefield who keeps our grass mowed and grounds looking fine.

There will be a special “Garden Party” on Saturday, July 10, at 2 pm, to dedicate the new Locke’s Mills Village Garden. It will feature light refreshments, music from the tuba group Low Commotion, tours of our historic houses, and more. All are welcome, and we hope to see many of you there.
