Visiting gardens and nurseries is fun and inspirational, and the club has tours big and small.  Join us on our visits to gardens across a street or across the state and leave with ideas, inspiration, and maybe a plant or two. 

Flower Therapy

This award-winning program connects our Club members with the community through Books & Blossoms and Assisted Living Flower therapy activities. Learning and teaching flower arranging and bringing the joy of flowers to people is what makes this program special.

Gardeners know all the dirt!
