St Mary's Martha Mary Guild Sparks Garden Enthusiasm


COLTS NECK, N.J. - It’s Almost “Garden Time”!

Remember the old saying “April showers bring May flowers”?  Some of the Spring flowers are already being welcomed into our area and many of us are looking forward to getting out there to do some gardening.  In anticipation of this, St. Mary’s Martha Mary Guild has invited two Monmouth County Master Gardeners to be the highlight of our April meeting.  Ellen Simonetti and Robert Mellert are both very experienced in this field.

Ellen has been a Master Gardener since 2008 and has served as president of the Monmouth County Gardener Association and the State Board of Master Gardeners.  Robert joined the Master Gardeners in 2001 and has served as chair of many of their committees, including the group that initiated the formal herb garden, called “The Herbary”, behind the AG Building on Kozloski Road in Freehold.

They both work at several community gardens in Western Monmouth County, including the newly expanded Marlboro Community Garden, where Ellen is the volunteer manager.

At this meeting, their focus will be on different types of herbs – how they are used and how they are grown.  They will offer guidance on using containers and/or planting directly in the ground.

All are invited to join us on Wednesday, April 11 at 11:30 a.m. to pray the rosary in the Spiritual Center Chapel.  At noon, there will be a BYOL (Bring Your Own Lunch), with refreshments provided by the Guild in Madonna Hall.  Ellen and Robert will begin “sparking our gardening enthusiasm” at 12:30 p.m.
