The Garden Club of Weaverville’s Annual Rummage Sale, held on May 6th, was a huge success. Hand-blown glass artwork, rugs, garden tools, plants and more flew out the door at bargain prices.
Founded in 1973, the Garden Club is a co-ed non-profit open to everyone which works to contribute to the knowledge and enjoyment of gardening. The sale raised nearly $2000 this year and will provide funds for the beautification of downtown Weaverville parks, garden spaces and flower beds to help us keep Weaverville beautiful! Proceeds from the Rummage Sale also helps buy supplies for the holidays wreaths, ornaments for the trees we decorate in the heart of town, and helps us support the Main Street Nature Park.
A big thanks to all our members who supported the sale by donating items and giving their valuable time to help set up, price items, bake yummy goodies, provide food for the volunteers and work at the sale. Everyone’s participation is much appreciated and made our one and only yearly fundraiser so successful.
A special thanks to the Town of Weaverville for the use of the community center overlooking beautiful Lake Louise and to The Cottage Door Consignment Boutique which gives us hundreds of items to sell each year. Members can support the Garden Club all year long by taking items to the Cottage Door and donating them to be sold for the Garden Club’s account.
Thank you everyone,
Rummage Sale Committee
On Tuesday, June 13, the members of the Weaverville Garden Club will visit two area gardens. The first one is a large dry shade garden, and a wonderfully addressed landscaping challenge for anyone who has to deal with mature trees on their property. The second garden belongs to an experienced gardener and combines edible and native plants on a hilly site. This event is for our membership only and is one of the benefits of joining our little organization. Space is limited so RSVP to Annick Flaxman as soon as possible

The Garden Club of Weaverville maintains four flower beds along Main Street in downtown Weaverville and creates the wreaths to decorate the fire station, Town Hall and other buildings for the holidays. The next time you’re in town, stroll through the Main Street Nature Park. Relax on one of the benches and enjoy the sculpture donated by the Garden Club. Each year we volunteer hundreds of hours to work in the wildflower garden and other areas. Proceeds from the Rummage Sale supports this project and many more the Garden Club is involved with throughout town.

Join other members in a hypertufa workshop – the technique of combining cement, perlite, water (and other materials) to form structures that are lighter weight than concrete and easy to shape. Click on links below:
By taking a workshop with an experienced teacher, you get a “tried and true” hypertufa recipe that works. If you make it too thin or thick, or have difficulties with the technique, the teacher is present to guide you through the process. And, you leave with a finished product. With the basic technique mastered, you will be ready to try sculptures, nature objects and other garden art, as shown on the Pinterest hypertufa web site. : https://www.pinterest.com/dhypertufa/diy-hypertufa-garden-art/
