Beausejour Daylily Gardens
Volunteers are the back bone success story of the Beausejour Daylily Gardens.
A handful of volunteers originally started the quest of an AHS display garden of Daylilies 10 years ago.
Now we have over 60 volunteers who help maintain the gardens to AHS standards. almost every section of the daylily beds has a sponsor,labeled with a garden angel volunteer.
We also have a committee called the Friends of the Beausejour Daylily Gardens who help with fundraising events as well as organizing, categorizing, planting.
Being a volunteer is good for the heart as well as the soul, claim researchers.
We're located on 1st Street North, take the ramp off 44 E, and immediately turn right at the Garden Shed marked Welcome to Beausejour.
