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.
The Geneva Garden Club proudly maintains the knuckle located downtown at the corner of 3rd & State Street in front of State Street Jewelers. The Geneva Beautification Committee held it’s 2nd Annual “Tour de Fleur” contest where people could vote for their favorite knuckle. Each vote cost $1 with all the proceeds going to the Geneva Beautification Committee. The Geneva Garden Club’s knuckle, “Le Potager,” came in 2nd place for the second year in a row. Thank you everyone who voted for us and for supporting such a great cause.
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.
