Spotlighting These Caring People and Their Service to the Community Through UCP

"The Garden Ladies "

Properly known as the Penn-Cumberland Garden Club, UCP’s Garden Ladies have been a mainstay of our volunteer program for more than 20 years. With members coming and going as their life circumstances and interests change, the current group comprises ten women.

The Garden Ladies can be found laboring at the Capital Area Children’s Center each month from October to June, making seasonal adjustments to the plants, shrubbery, and landscaping as needed. But their primary purpose at the Children’s Center is a labor of love: collaborating on gardening projects with the kids enrolled in the Options childcare and preschool program.

The Garden Ladies’ commitment to the kids is obvious. They used Garden Club funds to pay for the raised flower beds and barrels in the kids play area outside, and they often pay for project-related supplies out of their own pocket.
