As part of their 100th Anniversary commitment to give back to the community, the Garden Club of Bermuda donated to the Bermuda National Trust, with the funds to be used for the restoration of Verdmont.

Bermuda National Trust Executive Director Karen Border said, “The Bermuda National Trust thanks the Garden Club of Bermuda for their generous gift for enhancements to Verdmont.

“The historic home is a national treasure of Bermuda’s built heritage. Like all old buildings, it costs a lot to maintain and keep open for the enjoyment and education of Bermuda residents and visitors, so we are deeply appreciative of their support.
