Burke View Garden Club started with 19 members in 1957. Most of the members had new yards and very little knowledge of plants, gardens and landscaping. They have had their own flower show every year and many members were entering other shows as well. They joined Kalamazoo Garden Council in 1959 and were Federated in 1962. Burke View has had many members who have help positions on the Kalamazoo Garden Council’s board.
