Did you know Salisbury is a National Bee City? With that in mind, we are happy to announce we will be installing a new pollinating garden! Through a generous grant from the Maryland State Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the local Chapter Samuel Chase DAR, PHM volunteers will be working on the garden, which was designed by Horticultural Students from Salisbury University under the guidance of our very own David Scheid. The garden, which is based in part on an embroidery from the early 19th century, will feature seasonal pollinating plants, an historic (non-functional) bee skep, a Chippendale fence mimicking the railings at PHM, and a bench, which will be dedicated to Gen Deggendorf, who passed away this year, for her love of PHM and gardening. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting new project!
