Program on Spite House part of the Camden Garden Club Horticulture Series

Spite HouseTuesday, February 10th , at 10 a.m., the Camden Garden Club is offering the community a rare treat. Marylee Dodge, the owner of Spite House in Rockport, will bring photos of her legendary house and gardens to the morning lecture series in the Picker Room of the Camden Public library. She’ll talk about “The History of the House and Gardens of Spite House” and show a film of the moving of Spite House 85 miles by water from Phippsburg Center to its present location in 1925.

The Winter Horticulture Series will continue on the remaining Tuesdays in February, same time, same place. On February 17th, Dave Jackson will talk about why the Camden Amphitheatre won National Historic Landmark recognition. On February 24th, Hammon Buck will deliver the talk that was cancelled by the Big Snow in January: “Favorite Plants of 1915.”

The Camden Garden Club is always eager for enthusiastic new members and is a part of the Garden Club Federation of Maine, as well as National Garden Clubs, Inc.
