North Haven’s ‘Garden of Eatin’’ is back

North Haven’s ‘Garden of Eatin’’ is back



Despite the fact that its Junior Garden Club can't meet due to COVID-19, members of the North Haven Garden Club carried on and planted two plots at the United Faith Methodist Church – the "Garden of Eatin."

Cindy Golia, Frank Muzio, Lee Fermo and her granddaughter Alina, gathered using social distancing and planted the two 10x20 gardens.

Tomatoes (about six varieties), eggplant, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, kale, basil and parsley were planted and are being tended by Cindy, Lee and Alina. The club recieved some extra help from local residents Tina Craigola and her son Marco.

Also, the dedicated team weeded all the gardens and pathways at the “Garden of Eatin." The weeds are taken over to a compost bin where they are "marinated" and turned into great soil.

Normally the Junior Garden Club kids would do all the weeding. The garden club appreciates the help.

North Haven Garden Club is a member of The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut Inc., New England Garden Clubs Inc., and The National Garden Clubs Inc.
