Where would we be without the support of Northfield Shares? Their yearly beautification grants allow the Garden Club to provide flowering baskets and plantings on the Pedestrian Bridge over the Cannon River, in Bridge Square, in the Memorial Rose Garden and around the Pergola at the Farmer’s Market. Together we make the community more beautiful.
