"Enriching our lives by sharing our love for

               the art of gardening with our community"                                                                                                                                                  





We wish to thank those within the community who helped make our pecan sale and greens sale a great success.  It pleases us to know that the community supports us and the programs we provide to them - planting flowers downtown on the bridges, in front of city hall and various businesses - landscaping and providing equipment to the newly established "Home of Hope Serenity Garden"  (Grants from the National Garden Club and Ames Companies used for equipment) - decorating the historic Governor Ross Mansion for the holidays - working with the Boys & Girls Club of Western Sussex County and planting a garden - supporting the newly established Delaware Botanic Gardens in Dagsboro - granting two $1,000 scholarship to deserving students at DelTech - promoting environmental conservation and recycling.
