The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City, MI

Plant Michigan, Plant Native

              COME JOIN US IN 2019!

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!   This year our club is celebrating its 96th year since we were organized in 1923 with 35 members.  Currently, our club has 53 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 "open space" by the Bay.  We, also, support a summer long program at the Grand Traverse Area Children's Garden that teach children how to grow and enjoy eating vegetables.  These are just a few of our projects!  Be sure to check out the "Photo" section of our website for more information and see all the awards our club has earned this year.

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, Beth  We would love to have you join us in 2019!  See what being a "FRIENDLY" is all about!  If you would like to make a donation to The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, click here.
