Guild Trip Group returned to Buckhorn! Thanks to JoAnne, Loretta, Karen and Corinne for planning and executing this year's Herb Guild trip. What a wonderful adventure (akin to herding cats) but everyone got home safely.
Summer Picnic at the Pavillion
May Plant Auction
The Plant Auction was well stocked with plant donations from our members. Thank you to 
Bobbi F and her Plant Auction Committee and to everyone who donated to the event.
What has the Barton House Committee been up to lately?
The "History Comes Alive" Civil War Living History weekend was a great success! Our Barton House Herb Guild Committee was busy preparing the house and gardens to welcome area school children on May 4th and the general public for this community event that was held May 4-6 at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds. Check out the photos on the  Barton House Gardens page.
