12th Annual Secret Gardens of West Chester
We were pleased to engage a new neighborhood in the South Walnut Street area of the borough of West Chester for our 12th Annual Secret Gardens event. Over 300 gardening enthusiasts and supporters of Barclay Friends attended, helping us raise $14,000 in support of our horticultural therapy program; proceeds go directly to support residents’ horticultural therapy activities. The tour would not be possible without the dedicated support of our sponsors, volunteers, and garden owners, who graciously open their gardens to the greater community.
2016 Garden Party
Residents, family members, and supporters of Barclay Friends came together for the annual Garden Party, now enjoying its 17th year, in the natural serenity of Anne’s Garden. Attendees dined on savory hors d’oeuvres and delectable desserts made by the Barclay Friends Dining Services team and – despite the steamy late summer weather – guests were able to cool off with IPA, Pilsner, Porter, and Dubbel brews handcrafted by Mike Bury, Grand Master I, BJCP judge.
This event is held annually the night preceding the Secret Gardens tour and provides an opportunity for Barclay Friends to thank supporters, families and friends, as well as to highlight the importance of our horticultural therapy program.
