Gentian Garden Club installs community birdhouse with art fest grant

SCITUATE - The Gentian Garden Club has installed a community birdhouse inside the Gentian Wildflower Garden, across from the North Scituate Library in North Scituate Village.

Gentian member Mimi Cooke worked on a grant from the Scituate Art Festival Committee last year and was awarded the grant to have a birdhouse built.

The birdhouse was built by Greg Phillips.

Phillips is known throughout the community as a plant propagator and carpenter. He used the Community Church across the street from the garden as his inspiration for the structure.
