Youth Garden Clubs

Each month, from September to May, Garden Club members meet with fourth- and fifth-graders at  St. Mary’s Academy school to teach gardening techniques and flower arranging.
Beginning February 2019, the Garden Club launched a second Youth Garden Club that meets at the LBI branch of the Ocean County Library  located in Surf City. Children in grades three through six from the community are welcome to attend.

St. Mary’s Youth Club

We all enjoyed our first meeting with the new Youth Group at the new St. Mary Academy (formerly All Saints Regional Catholic School) on October 16th. We’re thrilled with this group of 5 girls and 4 boys in the 4th and 5th grades. They showed enthusiasm and talent as they created their autumn themed flower arrangements.

Library Youth Club

The Library Youth Group celebrated Halloween with a creative floral design of orange spider mums , mini-carnations,  black bats on curly willow and a yellow styrofoam moon.  With the help of Teresa Hagan, Paula Cofone, Ginny Scarlatelli and Margo Bartiromo the 15 young designers created masterpieces.
