Youth Garden Clubs
Each month, from September to May, Garden Club members meet with fourth- and fifth-graders at All Saint’s Regional Catholic 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.
Library Youth Club
“Lucky Leapin’ Leprechauns” Paula Cofone and Pauline Gertzen joined co-chairs Margo Bartiromo, Jeannette Michelson and Ginny Scarlatelli at the Surf City library for a St. Patrick’s Day inspired flower arrangement with thirteen adorable 3rd to 6th graders and Garden Club President, Teresa Hagan . After some background information about St.Patrick’s Day was provided , the group started work on their original designs. Each arrangement used two sizes of carnations, thistles, key limes and sparkly shamrocks to render thirteen unique and beautiful floral designs.
