Fundraising at the Beautiful Kismet Inn
On Sunday, June 7 Brunswick Park and Gardens hosted a fundraiser at the lovely Kismet Inn in Bath. Participants were treated to a tour of this unique and remarkable inn. Its owner, Shadi Towfighi, prepared a cup of her signature tea for each guest. There were three garden talks, including: Master Gardener Debbie Atwood's discussion called "From Seeds to Supper"; Habitat Steward Gretchen Kamilewicz who discussed ways to create a wildlife-friendly backyard; and Master Gardener Jan Colyear who offered suggestions for growing perennials in various light conditions. The afternoon included the homemade baked goods, a plant sale and a raffle. Participants left better educated about gardens, carrying any one of an amazing variety of plants to complement their home gardens.
