 ALWAYS ON TUESDAY

During the summer months, members of the Geneva Garden Club enjoy spending Tuesday afternoons visiting in each other’s gardens.  It’s a great way to relax, strengthen friendships, share recipes, get great gardening ideas, and of course, it’s “Always on Tuesday.”   Thank you to all the members who are opening up their yards this summer!

SPRING LUNCHEON EXTRAVAGANZA!

The Geneva Garden Club’s first ever Spring Luncheon Extravaganza was a resounding success filled with incredible raffle prizes, welcoming ambiance, delicious food, an entertaining and informative presenter, and most importantly….amazing people.  Thank you to all who attended and all who helped put this wonderful event together.

 


 GENEVA GARDEN CLUB PARK

Over the course of this summer and fall, the Geneva Garden Club has put great effort into rejuvinating Garden Club Park.   Hardy perennials and shrubs were planted to provide a tranquil and awe-inspiring setting on the Fox River above the Dam.  The greatest challenge at Geneva Garden Club Park is the lack of a water source.  All of the new plant material was carefully chosen with this issue in mind and are drought resistant.  When visiting Garden Club Park, you may find garden club members removing jugs of water from their cars in attempts to keep the plants watered and healthy.  Garden Club Park is located one block north of State Street on North River Lane, next to Riverside Banquets.
