A message from our President:
Welcome to Salisbury Garden Club! The garden club year 2020-2021 certainly presented us with many changes of how we think, do things and live our lives. We were not able to meet in person for most of the year so we adapted to a Zoom virtual meeting. Our dedicated members have continued many of our projects while practicing safety protocols of wearing masks and distancing. You can view some of our projects as you look around the web site. Our virtual exhibits include design, horticulture and botanical displays and were all contributed by our members. What fun to create at home and have the opportunity to share our projects on line for others to see!
As we look forward to the 2021-2022 club year, we are ready to get back to meeting in person, seeing programs, working on our community and education projects and all we do as Garden Clubbers.
If you are interested in growing flowers, learning floral design, ways we can work to improve our environment, beautifying our communities, or educating children and others about nature, then Salisbury Garden club may be just what you are looking for.
We are very excited to be meeting in person on September 15, 2021 at The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer. Generally, we meet the third Wednesday of every month September thru April: 9:30am -10:am for social time with short business meeting starting promptly at 10:00am followed by a presentation or demonstration on gardening, horticulture or design. There are a few exceptions so please check before you come.
Please contact Barbara Metz, Membership Chair, at 804-794-6376, email firstname.lastname@example.org or Janice Beatty, President, at 804-337-6152, e-mail email@example.com with questions. Hope you will join us as we acquire knowledge, experience and develop lasting friendships.
Here's an update on our Daffodil project!
Daffodil Delight - Salisbury Garden Club Tradition Salisbury Garden Club continues their Daffodil Tradition which started in the fall of 2009 which was the 40th Anniversary of the club. That year they planted 4000 bulbs to honor the 100 members of the club. The bulbs were planted at various places with in the community including the Church of the Redeemer (their meeting place), Wishing Well Park, the Midlothian Post Office, Midlothian Fire Station, Suburban Mobile Village, Entrance to Salisbury at Robious Rd. The Salisbury Garden Club members have maintained the Daffodil Tradition. Multiple types of bulbs, approximately 100, including Ice Follies,Carltons, Dutch Masters, Thalia and Jetfire are planted at the various sites yearly. When the club’s Anniversary Garden was created at the Church of the Redeemer in 2019, members included Daffodil in the planning. The Salisbury Garden Club has been able to maintain meetings and programs thru Zoom. They also continue doing floral designs, Botanical Designs and Horticulture specimens by e-mailing a photo of the project to the Exhibit Chairmen who in turn organized the photos and have them posted on the club’s website at SalisburyGardenClub.com.
