Some Really Good News!
The Shakespeare Garden is one of those gems that will be an asset in a proposed "branding" campaign for Plainfield. Located in Cedar Brook Park and maintained by the Plainfield Garden Club, it draws visitors and residents alike for an esthetic experience and a link to other Shakespeare gardens worldwide. My neighbor and I visited in June and I gave the garden club permission to use my photos as they saw fit. Click here for the original blog post.
Volunteers start maintaining the garden on a weekly basis in April and continue through cleanup time in Fall. The garden is always open along with the Union County park, from dawn to dusk.
It is very heartening to know that the club has been successful in receiving help to achieve the goal of replacing the pergola and making other improvements. Some will be dedicated to members who have passed on, but who left a legacy of decades of devotion to the cause.
Besides Shakespeare's famous garden references, there are many more. Click here to see a compilation by the fancifully-named "Emily Compost." (Get it?)
