Beautifying Maybury Farm

 Beautification Donation Form

Beginning in the Spring and running through the summer we offer "Beautification" opportunities at the Farm.  They include:

  • Flowers - Donations of $50 will be used for the planting of flowers at the entrance of Maybury Farm, in the Farm's flower beds, and around the patio.
  • Paver Stones - If you have visited Maybury Farm you have noticed the beautiful patio that was built for us by Global Gardens. The pavers used were used specifically so that people would have the opportunity to purchase a paver by making a donation to the Farm. The pavers come in two sizes (detailed above) and make wonderful birthday, anniversary, memorial, or just-because gifts.
  • Picnic Table - As Maybury Farm increases in its programming we have more and more need for picnic tables. If you would like to sponsor a picnic table for a $1,500 donation a plaque will be placed on the table with your desired inscription (limited to 12 characters and spaces 3 lines).
  • Buy A Board - Maybury Farm is continually in need of lumber. It is used to replace boards, build pastures, build lean-to's, repair pens, repair wagons, rebuild wagons, etc. We would also like to add an addition to our Welcome Center.  Your donation of $250 for boards will greatly help with all of the above items. Your family name will also be placed on a plaque that will hang permanently at Maybury Farm. A great GIFT idea!
