Divide Your Perennials and Donate Them to Chatfield!
September 16th, 2010
Have your hostas hijacked your garden? Is your yard overrun by daylilies? Would you like to divide your perennials before next spring but don't have any more room in your yard or garden to relocate them?
Chatfield College has a solution! The college has recently re-designed several areas throughout the campus, and is looking for perennials to help landscape these new, green territories.
“We have re-claimed some former driveways and turned them into pedestrian walkways” explained Chuck Gray, Chatfield's Physical Plant Manager. “Several new adjacent flower beds are tilled, mulched and ready for planting. When completed, this will surely be a popular place for students and instructors to mingle and relax.”
Anyone wishing to divide and donate perennials to Chatfield can bring them to the campus on Saturday, Oct. 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the college's first ever Homecoming Celebration.
The all-day event will include a welcome reception, a procession to the Ursuline Cemetary, a student variety show, a student and faculty art show, cornhole and tennis tournaments, a Catholic Mass in the Sacred Heart Chapel, and food and entertainment. All Homecoming activities are free and open to the community.
For more information about perennial donations or to R.S.V.P. to Homecoming, call 513-875-3344, ext. 110.
