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 opened up their yards this summer!
FANCY PLANTS AND… not so PLAIN JANE PLANT SALE
The Geneva Garden Club’s first annual “Fancy Plants & not so Plain Jane Plant Sale” was a HUGE success! Thank you to everyone who came out to shop and to those members who donated plants. The sale featured beautiful, reliable, hard to find plants from a reputable nursery as well as various potted plants from our own members’ lovely gardens.
Thank you to everyone who braved the cold and came out to the Gardenology Festival on May 14th. Despite the weather, it was still a fantastic day full of workshops, demonstrations, vendors, and all things gardening. The Geneva Garden Club is proud to be a main sponsor of this event.
