Junior Garden Clubs

Each month, from September to May, Garden Club members meet with fourth- and fifth-graders at a local school to teach gardening techniques and flower arranging.

These young gardeners have grown lettuce and spinach in an outdoor garden, planted dish and succulent gardens, and made beautiful flower arrangements to take home. All projects are hands-on–albeit, often dirty hands! If you’re interested in participating, please contact Jennifer Schwab.

December- Happy Holidays!

The Youth Group kids enjoyed making Christmas flower arrangements.  They used several types of flowers and greens, as well as gold painted pinecones and shiny bells. Dianne Pleyn made each child a delicious Christmas cupcake with a cute snowman decoration on top.  Click on an image to enlarge.

November 2018 – Happy Thanksgiving!

On November 14th, the All Saints Youth Group made Thanksgiving flower arrangements with orange chrysanthemums, orange safflowers, brilliant purple asters, and plenty of greens!  The results were cheerful and seasonal, and were topped off with turkey embellishments. It was gratifying to see each child’s interest and  concentration as she/he worked, and the beautiful and unique arrangement that each created.
