New Outreach Projects!

We have now "signed off" on the Orchard Garden project and we are looking for a new venture. We feel it is an important element of the Foxrock & District Garden Club that we participate in some way in the community. We would love to use our combined gardening skills to help make a beautiful outdoor space for some group of people. It may be planting up window boxes or something a little more ambitious.
