Bay Village Garden Club plans year of activities

The gardens of club members were on display during the Bay Village Garden Club's July garden walk.

What is a conifer? How can you compact garbage without an odor? What are the perfect miniature perennials for a tabletop garden? How can you create a water garden on a porch? These are just a few questions that will be answered by this year's speakers at the Bay Village Garden Club's monthly meetings. Presently we have 71 members from Bay Village, Westlake, Rocky River, Avon and Avon Lake, and are always eager to welcome more.

Our first meeting for 2017-2018 will be on Monday, Sept. 25, 11:30 a.m., at Bay United Methodist Church, 29931 Lake Road. Our speaker is Bethany Majeski, from the Rocky River Nature Center, and she will be speaking about plants that provide year-round beauty. Any interested gardeners are welcome to attend and learn more about our club.

The Garden Club is involved in many beautification and service projects. During the holidays we create live decorations for residents served by the Dwyer Center. This past year we began working with the Village Project. In July we had a Garden Walk for members, featuring member's gardens. Although the weather was not ideal the gardens were beautiful. We have several field trips planned this coming year and we will again be holding holidays workshops for the public. Our annual "Greening" will be on Dec. 5 and 6.

Our club has something to offer to both Master Gardeners and people who just like to smell the flowers. For more information plese visit our website:
