Garden Club pots up for KPMG's
Members of the KPMG Green
Committee receiving Garden Club potted plants:
l-r Joanna Little, Sue Le'Strange, Susan Armstrong, Nicki Griffiths
this month The Garden Club was asked if it would supply desk plants,
handed to the first 50 KPMG employees to arrive at work, as part of
KPMG's Green Initiative. KPMG Bermuda believes that sustainable
communities are directly tied to how well we live in our environment.
The KPMG Green Committee has a number of annual initiatives and goals
which are supported by lunch & learns, quizzes, posters, audits (eg
waste and paper usage) and quarterly giveaways. This year they started
a Tip of the Month with February being “Improve your indoor air quality
with plants and by keeping your home and office well ventilated”.
President Susan Conyers and a small group took on the project, the
results of which can be seen above. The project was hailed a
success, so much so that KPMG are planning to repeat it. A
donation by KPMG was made which will be applied to our annual
Scholarships, and Community activities.
Keep Bermuda Beautiful!
A huge thank you to Garden Club members who worked hard on a beautiful

The Garden Club of Bermuda has donated
$10,000 to this year's Keep Bermuda Beautiful (KBB) fundraising drive.
KBB was originally an offshoot of The Garden Club, and they are
delighted to be able to support this very worthwhile organisation.
The presentation was made at our January 2015 General Meeting.
