"Enriching our lives by sharing our love for
the art of gardening with our community"
We are happy and proud to report that our club received the "Endeavor Award" for outstanding flower show from the Delaware Judges Council for our "Birds and Bees" Flower Show in June, 2019. This award was accompanied with a $50 honorarium.
The Philadelphia Flower Show has been scheduled for June 5-13, 2021, at the FDR Park in Philadelphia.
The club will not have meetings in February or March. The possibility of "Zoom" meetings is out there. Possibly the club will old an outdoor meeting in May or June. The board will have a meeting in April.
Due to the Corona 19 Virus and the various restrictions necessary the Garden Club has temporarily cancelled all member activities. Please stay safe and follow the governor's guidelines. It's difficult and time consuming but please sign up to get a Covid 19 Vaccination. We will see what the future holds for us. Meanwhile enjoy what remains of winter and look forward to a fresh start in the spring and summer.
Wear a mask, wash your hands and keep social distancing!
