Summer at CMH

The Summer Season at CMH

But how could anyone who’s ever seen a summer….big recordings of green and skies lit up electric with splashy sunsets, a riot of flowers and wind that smells like concert….pick the snow?”   ~ Lauren Oliver

The snow of this past winter is a far-removed memory as now a warm-season ramble through the gardens and trails here at CMH guarantees to fill and treat the senses. Along trail edges and on branches overhead, the fruit of blackberry, raspberry, and apple ripen and sweeten.   Rose, daisy, trumpet honeysuckle, and bee balm, brim with showy petals of white, pink, lavender and every shade of red.  Propagated and replanted in outdoor pots and beds during class time are savory scented chives, basil, oregano and other herbs.  Flutelike notes from Wood Thrush, the dry-rattle call of Kingfisher, and the clucks and gobbles of foraging Wild Turkey create a musical ensemble worthy of the attentive listener.

Feel free to come join us this summer on every other Tuesday from 9-10:30am beginning June 17 – August 12 to help maintain the grounds of CMH. Meet up with your CMH friends & bring the kids for a playground playdate.
