JOIN A GARDEN CLUB
YOU’LL FIND A VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES AND OPPORTUNITIES
Most garden clubs meet monthly and offer a wide variety of educational programs to their members. Topics might include: the study of birds, butterflies, and beneficial insects and how to attract them; organic gardening and composting; landscape and floral design; creating ponds and water features; pruning shrubs and trees; gardening techniques for annuals and perennials, vegetables and house plants; and conservation issues and environmental education, to name a few.
Most garden clubs enjoy hands-on activities during their club meetings where members can create something to take home: herb baskets, fairy gardens, fall wreaths using dried materials, yard ornaments, butterfly feeders, fresh green arrangements for the holidays, or a miniature spring floral arrangement.
Many garden clubs develop and regularly participate in local community service projects. Kalamazoo Garden Council’s member garden clubs have made a significant impact in the Greater Kalamazoo Community. Garden Clubs have landscaped and maintained the grounds of local U.S. Post Offices, community centers, libraries, nursing homes, churches, schools, retirement communities, and other public areas such as the Kalamazoo Transportation Center, and city parks. What an amazing difference the collective efforts of our garden clubs have made in our community!
HOW TO JOIN A GARDEN CLUB
The Kalamazoo Garden Council does not have individual memberships. You automatically become a member of KGC when you join one of our member clubs.
The best method of joining is to first decide when you would be available to attend meetings. Each member club’s meetings times are listed on the page KGC Member Clubs. Then if you click on the individual Member Club sites you can learn a little more about each group and their projects.
If you would like more assistance, please contact Sharon Zinser, the KGC Membership Chair, using the form below.
