COMMUNITY WORK

On June 13th 2014 The Garden Club's talented flower arrangers were hard at work preparing for the Governor's cocktail party to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's 87th birthday at Government House.  Below are some of these arrangements (some in progress) and their creators on a hot summer's morning!

________________

In the early 1960's members of the Garden Club had the foresight to form an environmental protection committee named "The Keep Bermuda Beautiful Committee". In 1964, KBB became its own entity, but KBB still thinks of the Garden Club as their "parent" organization.  On January 11th 2013 The Garden Club of Bermuda presented KBB with a cheque in the amount of $7,500. This is the second year in a row that the Garden Club have been able to financially support KBB.  On Tuesday, February 26th, 2013 KBB held their Appreciation Awards Ceremony and presented The Garden Club with the KBB Environmental Partner Award

Schools' Gardening Project at Government House, January 2013

Early in December 2012 the Governor's wife, Mrs. Margaret Fergusson, asked for mentors from the Garden Club to help her set up an inaugural schools' kitchen garden project.  As can be seen from the photos below this has been a great success.

The Smith Garden in St. George's

This tiny garden just off Barberís Alley was designed by one of our members, Evelyn Young, and created by Garden Club members as our gift to St. Georgeís when it acquired World Heritage Status some years ago.  We have been looking after it ever since. Above is Garden Club member Betsey Mowbray planting a section of the garden.  Any Garden Club members who would like to help out for an hour every six weeks can contact bmowbray@northrock.bm
