One of the major activities throughout the year is Beautification. Numerous members of the Club take on the delightful task of planting and maintaining areas throughout the town with seasonal annuals. Updated self-watering urns are placed at more than 25 strategic sites in town and display ever-changing flowers and greens year round with seasonal plantings. Some of the other areas The Milford Garden Club has dedicated themselves to maintaining are the beds at the Milford Signs at three entry triangles and two “pocket gardens” at each end of Ann St.
Ethel Barckley Park is located at the river end of East Ann Street (diagonal to the La Posada) and is dedicated to the memory of Ethel who served as past president. It overlooks a serene view of the Delaware River. Newly restored in 2019, it is a must-see for locals and visitors alike.
Remembrance Place (formerly the Dimmick Cemetery) is the hidden jewel of the town. Located at the far end of Ann Street, adjacent to the Key Food and behind Stroyan Funeral Home, a variety of gardens are dedicated to perennial plants which are native to the area.
Community Garden Project
The Community Garden Project was launched by the Milford Garden Club in 2012. We hope to provide fresh produce to the Ecumenical Food Pantry (located at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, Milford, PA) during the growing season. Milford Township has graciously allowed the club to use the property adjacent to the township building (560 Route 6 and 209) which is enclosed and has access to water. It is estimated that over 500 pounds of fresh grown produce from eggplant to beans to potatoes were donated this past year.
Volunteers, both from the Garden Club and the community at large, both young and old, have been tending the garden on a daily basis with tasks such as planting, watering and weeding. If you would like to donate or become a volunteer to this Community Garden Project, please email email@example.com.
