A Fall Update for Atlantic Shores

Two patient gardens at Atlantic Shores Rehab and Health Center received a seasonal update, last week, following the PLGC Expo and Plant Sale. Six members weeded the shrubbery beds, replaced the geraniums that were potted in spring with fall mums and planted several mums and pansies. The purchase of these plants was made possible through our profit from the plant sale.

If any non-members are interested in helping us with this project, please use the CONTACT take at the top of this page to let us know. UPDATE: Two PLGC members

New Delaware Garden Clubs Website

Welcome to the new official website for Delaware Federation of Garden Clubs. DelawareGardenClubs.org went live on September 1, just six weeks after I was drafted by DFGC Lisa Arni for the role of planning, building, formatting, writing content, taking and finding pictures, and endless tweaking and polishing. Thank goodness for many years of experience working with professional website developers who created several generations of real estate websites for my business, using my content and photos. Who could have imagined that someday I would put that experience to work creating a website for a state garden club? There are 43 pages of content divided into two areas: The home page that is pictur
