Grounds & Gardening Support:

Except for the lawn which is cut by a professional, all garden and grounds keeping is done by volunteers. There are 3 small flower beds which are weeded by volunteers. The Herb garden is maintained by one of the Girl Scout troops. The large trees have been on the property for several generations. Two smaller trees were planted as part of an Eagle Scout project. Three sides of the property contain shrubs. The Garden Club of Mt. Sinai has donated their time and expertise in cleaning up one of the borders. Plans to work on the other two borders during the winter and spring are in the planning stage. Click here to become a volunteer.
