Meetings

gardener“I have never been to a Garden Club meeting before. I have fun in the garden but I still have a lot to learn. Do I have to be an expert? I would really like to know more.”

We have your answers:

When are meetings? 7:00 PM on the first Thursday of each month, unless otherwise noted. Watch our calendar for other gardening interest events in the area.

Where are the meetings? Regular meetings are held at the Town Hall of Shawnee Town 1929, 11600 Johnson Drive. Notices will be given as we occasionally meet in a member’s garden, at a park, or a local garden center.

What are the meetings about? We will discuss Garden Club business, including welcoming new members and planning for community events. A guest speaker will typically present an informative garden-related program. We share tips and ideas, such as our favorite flowers and most useful garden tools. There is a raffle for door prizes, and we make time to enjoy refreshments and the company of our fellow gardeners.

Who can come to the meetings? Anyone who is interested in gardening and beautifying Shawnee, including gardeners with any level of knowledge and experience. Guests are welcome. Talk to us about the benefits of membership.

 

These  Garden Club meetings are be listed on the calendar for this site along with other garden-related community events, workshops, or tours. Feel free to contact us if you have something to share!
