Grow Your World and Green Your Community by Joining a GARDEN CLUB

 

As nearly 200,000 men and women of all ages and backgrounds across the nation can attest, the rewards of belonging to a Garden Club go far beyond the pure pleasure of growing things.  Joining a local Garden Club is a great way to “green” your thumb, but a membership also provides an opportunity to expand your interests and build lifelong friendships while bettering your community and the environment.  A Garden Club will give you access to people who are experienced in gardening in your locality and you will find their assistance in valuable.

I pledge to protect and conserve our natural resources of planet earth and to promote education so that we may become caretakers (stewards) of our air, water, forest, land and wild life.
