On the occasion of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday, the Garden Club's talented flower arrangers were once again out in force to prepare for the Governor's cocktail party on June 9th, at Government House, in her honour.

During our April 2016 General Meeting, President Anna Fulton (left) presented KBB representative Sue Black with a cheque for $3,000 on behalf of The Garden Club of Bermuda in support of the work done by Keep Bermuda Beautiful, a former offshoot of the Garden Club.
At the Garden Club's General Meeting in October 2015, Tucker Murphy gave an interesting talk on the railway trail and bridges. The Garden Club presented Mr. Murphy with a cheque for $2,500 towards this worthwhile project.

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 day cleaning up the verges of Kindley Field Road as part of KBB's Clean Up, Thursday, January 22nd 2015.
The Garden Club of Bermuda donated $10,000 in 2015 towards Keep Bermuda Beautiful's (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.
