Spirit of the Woods Garden Club names July Garden of the Month

RtC - Garden Club July

The Spirit of the Woods Garden Club named the garden of Manistee resident Kirsten Amstutz (right) as its Garden of the Month for July. The 15-year-old garden is located at her home on the 200 block of Third Street and is complete with perennial plants that have been passed down through her family by her grandmother and mother. Amstutz has added to the garden and her daughter has added a “Fairy Garden”, creating a fourth generation of gardening in her family. Amstutz was awarded a gift certificate to Miller’s Produce and was offered a year-long membership to the Spirit of the Woods Garden Club by member Sue Welsh (left). To suggest a garden of the month, contact Mary Metzger at (231) 398-2622. The club meets from 12-3 p.m. on the second Monday of every month from April to December at the Oak Grove Hospitality Center in Manistee.
