Look for the Pink Gardening Boot and Support Marion Garden Group Beautification Efforts!

Jul 22, 2020

Have you noticed all of the beautiful planters located throughout the town of Marion? This is the second year that the Marion Garden Group Beautification Initiative has invested their resources in placing 15 large planters around town. A group of dedicated “Planter Angels” can be seen wearing their pink garden group vests as they carefully tend to planters, working hard and ensuring the town always looks its best. The town DPW is also helping by providing water to some of the locations.  

The Garden Group is excited about the improvement of five additional gardens located throughout town. The town reader board garden is the newest addition and can be seen thriving with beautiful colors in its location at the intersection of route 105 and route 6. Other garden locations include the island on Spring Street, The Converse Road island, the Welcome to Marion sign at the Captain Hadley House and the half turnaround on route 6 and the Mattapoisett line. We would like to consider this a starting effort but funding and additional assistance will be necessary in order to take our Beautification Project further.

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Garden Group’s annual summer fundraiser had to be cancelled this year. The summer fundraiser raises money to pay for the necessary landscaping, plants and flowers and maintenance that keep these local areas looking beautiful.

The Marion Garden Group is hoping that the community will continue to generously support these efforts by making donations to help. Checks can be mailed to the Marion Garden Group, PO Box 403, Marion, MA, or they can be dropped off in one of the pink gardening boots located at the General Store or Uncle John’s. You can also contact Liz Hatch, President of the Marion Garden group at mariongardengroup@gmail.com. All donations will be used to help keep Marion looking gorgeous throughout the summer and into the next year.
