It's the Men's Garden Club of Charleston we're talking about. Only about a year old and approximately" 30 members strong, the club has taken on a real challenge for its first important project -- an authentic Colonial garden to be planted at Charleston's Sunrise, as a Bicentennial event. R. Lee Bird, chairman of the planning committee, presented a sketch of the pro- Iposed garden, and out| lined plans and responsi- Ibilities for the project at I the club's August meet- ping held recently. As outlined by Bird, the ;1 garden would measure 19 £Jx 38 feet, with grass walk- Sways. "The garden in Pback of the Wythe House fin Williamsburg is laid out similarity," Bird stat- Howard ed but ad( j ed t h a t the club's garden will not be a Williamsburg garden. "Theirs were formal and we don't want to do that here," he emphasized. * * * BIRD PROPOSED that the members themselves donate the labor, equipment, and plants. The club would pay for fertilizer, chemicals, and possibly a fence. There will be teams to cover the various aspects of the garden, and these are being formed now. There will be, for instance, an herb team (to choose from a list of 62 herbs grown in Williamsburg today); a flower team (to start from seeds, transplant, mulch, cultivate), and a vegetable team (" we need to do research to see what vegetables were grown 200 years ago -- no beefsteak tomatoes!"). "We want to keep this as authentic as possible," Bird said. "For stakes we would use saplings. For tying we would use bark." * * * THE PLANNING committee will research the various vegetables, flowers, and herbs to be sure nothing is planted here that wasn't grown in Colonial gardens of 200 years ago. "As long as it's 200 years old and we can make it grow -that's for us," the club members decided enthusiastically. For instance. Colonial Williamsburg had a law that every garden had to be enclosed by a fence. Bird recommended that the members try to find an old snake fence which could be moved to the Sunrise location. Another sub-project was the making of a bulletin board sign with plot diagram, "so people can see what is growing in our garden." As tentatively proposed by the planning committee, the 19 x 38 foot garden would be divided into eight plots -- separated by grass walkways: four plots would contain vegetables; two. herbs and flowers: one, melons, pumpkins, and cucumbers; and one with four rows of corn. There already is a retaining wall at one end of the proposed garden area, and a parking area at the opposite end. * * * ALAS! The garden is only a two-year project of the club so no f r u i t trees, shrubs, or perennial vines will be considered. After the second year, the ground will be restored in grass if Sunrise doesn 't want to take over the garden. "We would break ground this fall around Thanksgiving," Bird proposed. "Nothing Humlin Couple Marks Wedding AnniVIM-SUIT HAML'IN-Mr. and Mrs. D. M. Vande- Linde will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with open house from 2 to 5 p.m. today at their home here.

This fall we would lay out the plots, spread horse manure around, and cultivate with a rototiller. We would let it winter and then cultivate again in the spring. During the winter, members could save their wood ashes and dust the area with them." » * * WAIT A MINUTE, men. Did you really say rototiller? Did the Colonial gardeners have rototillers? Surely you're going to use the same sort of equipment as was used in those days -- nothing electric or power driven! And what about that mention of chemicals and fertilizers earlier in the meeting? Surely you don't plan to use modern insecticides? Come on now, if this is to be a Colonial garden you should study the organic gardening methods of today. That's about as close as you can come to real old-time gardening and still actually produce something worthwhile. The snake fence is a good start... and saving wood ashes to mix into the winter soil is excellent... and using grass walks is fine, too. But what about the committee in charge of keeping the walkways in order? Will the clamor of a power mower break into the summer silence of Ye Olde Colonial Garden? Surely not. The whisk, whisk of a scythe would be more like it. * * * I, FOR ONE, wouldn't miss this garden' for anything. I can hardly wait to see it get underway. I only wish the fellows could be persuaded to keep it going permanently. But that's really too much to expect. After all, they all have their own gardens and home grounds to keep up. But this is a grand project and one the whole community will be looking forward to. In fact, men, your fame will spread even beyond the boundaries of Greater Charleston. Sunrise is visited by people from all over the world. Congratulations -- and good luck. * * * INCIDENTALLY, if you have any helpful suggestions for the Colonial garden -- or literature describing gardens of those times - contact one of the members: the aforementioned R. Lee Bird, club president J Zeb Wright (of succulent garden fame), secretary Gene A. Scbott, or bulletin editor John Holswade. Lenox makes a Bride feel more Beautiful.
