Federated Garden Clubs of Vermont, Inc.  Annual Meeting

June 4, 2018

The Southern District invites you to historic Hildene in Manchester, Vermont, on June 4th. 

 

The summer home of Robert Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln’s son, and surrounding grounds will be the setting of a wonderfully educational and peony filled meeting. Hildene’s Head Gardener will talk about the ongoing process of maintaining the heirloom peonies which were planted by the Lincoln gardeners in the early 1900’s. 

 

Following lunch you will be able to tour the home of Mary and Robert Lincoln as well as the famous Hoyt Gardens, which will be full of blooming, gorgeous, heirloom peonies.  Peonies are available to buy for your own gardens. 

 

Please join us for this “Celebration of Peonies.”
