Together we can help make Glastonbury a more beautiful, greener place to live.

Buckingham Park
Buckingham Park garden was started in the spring of 2007 to extend the GPIP projects to East Glastonbury. Since this garden is at the entrance to a town park and is across from a busy shopping area, it was thought that this was a perfect spot to showcase this new project. Designed by Deborah Kent, the garden was planted by 10 loyal and local volunteers who continue to weed, deadhead and water it. We partner with Buckingham Firehouse #4 to use their faucets to water the garden when necessary. Many of the local passers-by have complimented GPIP on the beauty of the garden as well as thanking the Buckingham volunteer team and GPIP for their hard work.

Buckingham Park plantings
It seems that every winter the local voles enjoy dining on the perennials at Buckingham Park! Thus a dedicated team of GPIP volunteers have additional work planting new and different ones each spring.

We greatly appreciate their time and labors to keep this East Glastonbury showcase garden looking beautiful. The volunteers clean and mulch the beds twice a year along with on-going summer weeding and deadheading.

GPIP also thanks the Buckingham Firehouse #4 for their help watering the garden.
