Neighborhood Garden Club
The Neighborhood Garden Club was founded in 1938. Our motto is “Friends are the flowers in the garden of life." Our club flower is the forget-me-not, and our club bird is the hummingbird. Our club meets the 2nd Monday of every month at the Garden Center in Sugar House Park for a lecture and lunch. We enjoy hearing more about what is happening in the area of gardening and about our community resources. Members take turns doing the centerpieces for the luncheons.
Our club is extremely interested in encouraging future generations to garden and care for this planet. We participate in and promote many of the programs that the National Garden Club, the US Forest Service and the National Wildlife Federation have developed, including the Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl Poster contest (this last year, three of the posters submitted made it to the national competition in Washington, DC), the development of urban pollinator gardens, the Frightened Frog Project, and Penny Pines, just to name a few. For more information on our club please contact Connie MacKay at (801) 274-2606.
