National Garden Week: June 7-13, 2015

Use this week to encourage pride in communities and cooperation among groups interested in educating the general public on the importance of general gardening information. The more involved in the community that your garden club can be, the more awareness we can generate for the National Garden Club and its mission.
Ideas include:
  • Sponsor a hands-on "How Do You Select Flowers/Shrubs for Your Garden" workshop at an area nursery.
  • Beautify a manageable blighted area with the cooperative efforts of another group.
  • Host a member garden tour. Include features such as a water garden, vegetable garden, rose garden, etc.
  • Conduct a "Get to Know Us" event at the public library.
