Trowel & Error 2016 – Thanks Everyone!


Trowel & Error  2016 was an overwhelming success. The speakers were enthusiastically received and were fabulous. Many, many thanks to them for their generosity in sharing their knowledge and efforts in teaching us all to be better and happier gardeners. Thanks, also, to our sponsors, who continue to support our efforts to restore Mayfield Cottage and Gardens for the community.  The  “garden goodie” raffle exceeded all expectations in the array of what gardeners love to have in their gardening “tool box”. Everyone was a winner. Last, but certainly not least, appreciative thanks to Mayfield Park/Community Project volunteers and friends who work mightily all year to make Mayfield a more beautiful and welcoming place to visit.  

Trowel & Error was held on Saturday, April 2.  Here is a recap of speakers and list of sponsors.
