Discover How Heirloom Plants Can Bring Beauty and History to the Garden

April 3, 2009

Come celebrate spring and help children and adults challenged by hearing loss by attending the Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing’s 6th annual Gardens Luncheon, “Celebrating our Heritage,” on Thursday, April 23, at the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin.

With the renewed interest in home gardening, there has also been new interest in the many joys and benefits of integrating heirloom plants into gardens and landscaping. In addition to their rich history, heirloom plants are also important to the environment and the casual gardener because they create critical biodiversity for insects and animals and are typically very hardy and require little care.

For those interested in finding out more about this new trend, the Gardens Luncheon will feature guest speaker Betty Adelman, owner of Heritage Flower Farm, who will share intriguing stories of some of our most loved heirloom plants and how to successfully integrate them into your contemporary home garden or landscape. The luncheon will be emceed by Joyce Garbaciak of WISN-TV, and the event chair is Joanie Achs, of Bayside.

In addition to a light lunch, silent auction and networking opportunities, this year’s luncheon will also feature one-of-a-kind centerpieces with pottery created by local artisans from The Potter’s Shop and Waukesha Clay Art Guild, and flower designs courtesy of students from the Milwaukee School of Flower Design.

 Tickets to the Gardens Luncheon are $65 each and can be purchased online at www.cdhh.org or by calling 414-604-2200. The luncheon will take place at the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin, 813 E. Kilbourn, Milwaukee, from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM on Thursday, April 23.

 The Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is located at 10243 W. National Avenue in West Allis and has been serving children and adults with hearing loss for more than 80 years. It offers a full range of services and technologies to enhance the quality of life of individuals with hearing loss – from infants to the elderly.
