Branching Out is our garden club theme for 2019-2021, with the goal of welcoming new members, expanding our knowledge and serving our community.
PLGC branched out to children in our community in Spring 2019 by adding a potting party for kids to our plant sale. We branched out again at a Community Day in mid-summer that included collaborating with other community organizations and introducing our garden club to many new and current residents in Plantation Lakes.
Branching out through programs for the 2019-2020 garden club year will introduce PLGC members to aquaponic gardening at Bearhole Farms, take us to Pennsylvania to see the holiday decorations at Longwood Gardens, and teach us about “botanical artistic crafts” — a new design category for NGC flower shows.
PLGC will support and promote the DFGC anti-litter campaign by recycling plastic plant containers and distributing anti-litter fliers at public events sponsored by our club. We will also promote and support NGC’s signature Plant America project in our club and community by encouraging our neighbors to donate unwanted shrubbery and trees for planting in the patient gardens at Atlanta Shores Rehab & Health Center in Millsboro.
We look forward to an active role in hosting the 2020 CAR-SGC Conference in Delaware, with PLGC members serving as the Conference Vice-Chair and chairing two of the planning committees.
Welcome to another fun and busy year with Plantation Lakes Garden Club in Millsboro, Delaware!
