In recognition of the Village of Warwick Sesquicentennial, the Warwick Valley Gardeners (WVG) have enhanced the garden they maintain on the Wheeler Ave. side of Village Hall with a display of historic images of the building. The Warwick Valley Gardeners maintain nine community gardens.
To further celebrate the Sesquicentennial, the WVG will host their annual garden tour on Sat., Jul. 8. The tour will focus on private and community gardens located within the Village.
The images displayed in the Village Hall garden come from the private collection of Marcela and Steve Gross.
The Warwick Valley Gardeners partnered up with the Village Hall Garden Committee to put together a garden next to Village Hall, complete with historic photographs of the building & the Village of Warwick.
