What is so rare as a day in June?

This cool, moist weather is refreshing for our landscape and extends the blooms of our spring favorites. Have you noticed the sweet-scented locust trees, peonies, or roses wafting through the breeze?  Our Garden Center is a sensory feast of sweet smells, ripening fruits, and eye popping perennials. One of our favorites is the sweet -scented cascading blooms of our native fringe tree, Chionanthus virginicus. Browse around the gardens and creative displays for inspiration. Come to one our our upcoming events, broaden your palette for designing with plants, or just enjoy the beauty of a rare June day!

The Town of Brighton will hold a public meeting to discuss a master plan for 120 acres of public land on Westfall Road.  As part of the Envision Brighton process the Friends of Brighton Farmers’ Market, has submitted a Brighton Community Farm Proposal to the Town to preserve a Town-owned farm on Westfall Road as a community center to promote gardening and farming—a key component of a more sustainable local food system. Support from the community is vital for it to receive serious consideration from the Town.
