Mocksville Garden Club

Club members have been busy during November and December.
In November, the club guest speaker was Jennifer Collins, owner of Cedar House Farm on Godbe2y Road. Totally organic, the farm raises pigs, goats, vegetables and flowers. Most of the vegetables are sold to restaurants and at farmers’ markets, along with the flowers. You may visit this farm and purchase vegetables, flowers, and other items. In the spring, by reservation only, you may take part in Baby Goat Yoga.
In November, club members held their annual Christmas greenery sale and gardening calendar sale. Purchased greenery was picked up or delivered Thanksgiving week. Becky Peters, chair for this event said: “The sales this year were the best ever.”
Club member Jean Harpe made the Christmas wreaths hanging in the park in downtown Mocksville. Members gathered greenery from their yards for Jean to use in the wreaths.
In December, the club hosted their end-of-year party at The 4 Oaks Event Center in downtown Mocksville. Members and guests were treated to a meal by caterer Alida Farmer and her team. Special entertainment was provided by Eric Powell, singing many Christmas favorites, accompanied on the piano by Barbara Basham.
Jan. 6, 2022, at 7 p.m., the club will kick off the new year with a program on wind chimes at Mocksville First Presbyterian con South Main Street in downtown . The public is invited to all meetings.
