Our Purpose

To further, in every way, interest in gardening and kindred subjects and to cooperate with all programs for the improvement in planting, conservation, environment and beautification of our island.

The Club supports many out-reach programs, local environmental organizations, scholarship programs, and services through the monies raised by our annual Holiday Tour of Homes.

Professional speakers present programs throughout the year on floral design, horticulture, environmental issues and garden-related topics.

Membership meetings are held the second Thursday of every month, September through May excluding December.

The March meeting featured the Third Annual READY, SET, CREATE. As members watched, three talented members of our club, Cathy Sutton, Irene Bausmith and Jennifer Schwab, each created a floral arrangement using the same flowers and containers .  The flowers used included Tulips, Gerber Daisies, Delphiniums, Pincushion Protea and Pussy Willows mixed with Agonis, Boxwood and Eucalyptus greens.This has become a favorite program among the members of the Garden Club.
