Rehoboth Garden Club Publicity for March 2023

Posted

President Paul Nunes and Scholarship Chairperson Linda Murphy were very pleased to present the 2023 Rehoboth Garden Club’s Pat Knowles Scholarships to two deserving local students. Taylor Sirois, a Seekonk resident and Bristol Agricultural High School graduate was awarded $2,500. Taylor attends Paul Smith’s College and is majoring in arboriculture. Rehoboth resident Kristin Corvi is a Dighton-Rehoboth High School graduate and received a $1,500 award. Kristin is majoring in biology and environmental science at U Mass Amherst. Congratulations to both of these fine students.

Applications are now being accepted for our 2024 scholarships. High school seniors who will be entering college this fall, as well as current college students may apply. They must be majoring in agriculture, horticulture, floraculture, or a related environmental science. The application deadline is April 15, 2024. For an application, please contact Linda Murphy at Ljmurphy47bell@yahoo.com  or Mary Louise Pacheco at 508-252-3975.

At our next meeting on March 18th, we will learn that we need to look no further than our backyard to supplement our salad bowl. Spring is the perfect time to forage common wild plants. Susan Clements, herbalist, forager and educator, will teach us how to identify and collect valuable “weeds”. Susan will provide insight into everyday uses for some of the treasures found, including medicinal and skin supporting properties for health and wellness. The community is invited to join us on Monday, March 18th at 9:30 AM at the Rehoboth Congregational Fellowship Hall, 139 Bay State Road, Rehoboth.

New members are always welcome! For club information, please contact Michael Seebeck at 401-787-5206 or michaeljseebeck@gmail.com.
