THE CHILDREN'S SENSORY GARDEN
If you enjoy gardening or anything relating to horticulture, flower arranging, the environment and more, you may want to visit one of The Friendly Garden Club meetings or join us online! This year our club is celebrating its 98th year since we were organized in 1923 with 35 members. Currently, our club has 44 active volunteers that keep Traverse City beautiful, which is reflected in our annual projects such as the Garden Walk, geranium sale, and the planting of the Logo Garden at the "open space" by the Bay. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we had to cancel some of these events. Be sure to check out the "Photo" section of our website for more information and see all the awards our club has earned.
All monies raised from our projects are totally given back to the community by way of grants and scholarships. If you are interested in learning more about us, our club holds monthly meetings from April through November, where we feature guest speakers, have hands-on projects and field trips, all emphasizing horticultural tips and the love of gardening. To attend any of our "OPEN" meetings or become a member, please send an email to our membership chairperson, Dorothy, who will give you all the information you need to become a member and join us online. See what being a "FRIENDLY" is all about!
200+ DAFFODILS PLANTED--On November 6, our Youth Gardening Committee planted over 200 daffodil bulbs to make "Our Giving Garden" beautiful this spring. May 2021 be a happier and healthier year for all of us!
