Herb sale benefits hospice center

The Mountain View Garden Club held its third biannual “A Celebration of Herbs” at the Laurel Ridge Country Club on June 20. Proceeds that were raised from the event will be donated to The Homestead, an inpatient hospice center currently under construction on property adjacent to the MedWest-Haywood hospital campus in Clyde. A total of about $7,000 was raised through the brunch and the auction. The money will be used to purchase plants, shrubs and trees for the gardens at The Homestead, which will allow residents to continue to experience nature by utilizing French doors to access an outdoor patio with perennial and annual flowers and plants as well as deciduous and evergreen shrubs and trees.
