Garden Event Returns to Raise Over $10,000 for Villa Gardens
On Thursday, April 28th, the Unionville Home Society Foundation hosted the Garden by the Greens Luncheon – LIVE THE GARDEN LIFE, at the beautiful Angus Glen Golf Club. This annual event raises funds to enhance and maintain the resident courtyard and sensory gardens at Union Villa long-term care home. We were humbled by the outstanding response (having cancelled both 2020 and 2021) with over 200 guests registered, 10 vendor stations, and generous sponsor support. Our favorite host, Kate Seaver of Kate’s Garden, was back with floral demonstrations and special tips on gardening. This year’s guest speaker was Amy Petersen, Registered Horticultural Therapist, whose presentation was focused on the therapeutic benefits of gardening.
A heartfelt thank you to our generous sponsors - Dragonfly, The Tar Team, The Hogan Group, Kate’s Garden and Amica Unionville/Amica Swan Lake. Thank you to the vendors that provided a fabulous shopping experience and to all our guests who returned with friends to celebrate 2022 as the Year of the Garden! Finally, this event would not have been possible if not for an incredibly dedicated committee – Jessica Competiello, Paula Hardman, Helene Hayward, Darlene McClelland, Gerlind Milich, Heather Millar, and Kim Schultz.
Save the date for next year – April 20, 2023.
