Garden Party to Benefit FMH Foundation

The romance of the English Garden has been around for centuries. It is practical, beautiful and fragrant. Learn more about the evolution and “secrets” of an English Garden at the entertaining program for Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation, Sunday, April 6, 3-4:30 p.m., at the historical St. John’s Episcopal Church, 301 West Liberty St., Winnsboro, presented by Sonya White.

Music by Susan Douglass Taylor, composer/vocalist on guitar, will sooth the senses to add to the casual afternoon program.

Fairfield County Master Gardeners will be in the garden to answer your plant and gardening questions. And Rhonda, with Hay Hill Garden Market, will have a variety of spring and summer plants for sale. Summer Day Gift Shop will have an array of unique items for purchase. Refreshments provided by The Cornwallis House Tea Company, who will also have their hand-crafted, custom-blend teas available.

Registration/donation is $25. Mail checks to FMH Foundation P.O. Box 1156, Winnsboro, S.C. 29180. No tickets will be sent; registered names will be at the door. Reservations recommended, but also available at the door. Inquiries e-mail to [email protected] or 803.608.5510

The daughter and granddaughter of farmers, Sonya White’s childhood in Northeast England literally revolved around planting, harvesting and a deep, practical appreciation for Earth’s bounties. She resigned from a 30 year career in Health Care and Clinical Development when she married her American husband in 2003 and moved to South Carolina in 2004. She now has the opportunity to indulge her passion for English gardening and the ancient meanings of plants and flowers. Sonya will take the group on a pictorial English garden tour of preserved early gardens from different eras in her homeland and offer suggestions for planning and nurturing your own garden in stages.

As a 501(c) 3 tax exempt organization, donations to the foundation may be tax deductible.
