If you have a REALLY nice, healthy, interesting plant that needs a new home we might decide to add it to the Conservatory collection. However, please check with us first before moving any plants into the Conservatory.
Our pride and joy is the Conservatory with its interesting variety of plants and warm sunlight. To keep it looking good requires a team of volunteers. The huge Norfolk Island Pine requires almost daily watering whereas the succulents can go for a week or two without a drink. Think about joining the Conservatory Care Watering Team of Mary Briggs, Cynthia Fuller, Faye Herold, Lana Herskovitz, Mary Abbe Hintz, Peg Houck, Finette Magnuson, Mary Ellen Nerney, Jenny Rajput, Eric Schiffman, and Kathleen Shannon. Training is available and you sign up for the week that works for you.
Located in the SE corner of the garage, the East Cage can be accessed with your R key. This is a shared storage space so please only borrow or use items on the shelves marked Resident Shared Garden Items. Add usable (clean) items to the collection or take what you can personally use. There are hand tools, pots, fencing, stakes, long-handled tools, etc. This is not a place to store your personal garden items, but items you no longer need are welcome. The white cabinet on wheels can be used for potting by putting one of the plastic bins on top. Just remember to clean up after use. There is a broom and dustpan in the corner near the trash room as well as a small trash can and a water spigot.
