2013 Hudson Holiday Doors

Posted on Sunday January 01, 2012

The Corpus family's door was selected as the Hudson Holiday Door for 2013. The brightly colored decorations (first thumbnail) caught the eye of homeowner Tracy Corpus several years ago, before the house had even been built. An eclectic, cornucopia-shaped stocking highlights the front door while the two flanking planters are accessorized with items found by Corpus at a local store. The arrangements bring an element of holiday whimsy to the European cottage home.

As the recipient of the Holiday Door of Hudson 2013, Tracy Corpus was presented with two tickets for the Hudson Garden Club’s 2014 Home and Garden Tour

October 2010 Soup Supper

Posted on Saturday January 22, 2011

At our October 2010 meeting, the Board provided a soup supper for the club members as a way to thank them for all they do for our club and community. A variety of homemade soups and breads were served. The dessert was unique—pudding with cookie crumb topping that looked like dirt, topped with gummy worms. Just perfect for us gardeners!

The Plant Exchange

Posted on Saturday January 22, 2011

We hold two Plant Exchanges a year—spring and fall. Gardeners bring divisions of plants from their gardens, exchange them for tickets, and use the tickets to “buy” plants. It’s a great way to meet other gardeners, share your excess plants and get new plants---all for free! The event is open to the public. Don’t come late for this event--these great bargains are quickly snapped up.

Daffodil Planting

Posted on Thursday November 11, 2010

As one of the club’s Youth projects, we started planting daffodils with the children attending Eastwoods School in 2005.  A different area at the front of the school was planted each year resulting in the entire front of the building being completed in the fall of 2010. Over 2000 bulbs were purchased by our club and planted by the children here. The daffodil planting program was extended to Hudson High School in the fall of 2011.

Mentoring workshops - a great way to learn

Posted on Monday November 08, 2010

Several times a year, we organize a learning session for new gardeners. Experienced club members have shared their gardening knowledge on a variety of topics. The events, open to members only, are announced in the club newsletter or via our club email list. Examples of past mentoring meetings include hands-on workshops on seed starting, making faux hypertufa troughs and a Q&A session on how to deal with garden critters. We've also held demonstrations on container planting, garden photography, pruning and beekeeping.
