For over 80 years, the Hudson Garden Club in Hudson, Ohio, has been active in beautifying our community and instilling a love of gardening. We have nearly 200 members, men and women of all ages, from beginners to quite experienced gardeners, who are eager to learn more about gardening and to share what they know.

Garden Club Activities

  • The Hudson Garden Club meets one Thursday evening monthly from September through May, at Laurel Lake Retirement Community. The social gathering starts at 6:45 p.m., with tea and coffee, and the program begins at 7:00 p.m. Meetings are free and visitors are always welcome!
  • The highlight of our group's annual projects is the Home and Garden Tour. Held in June, the two-day event brings over 1,250 visitors to Hudson. The Tour owes its success to the tremendous support of more than 500 volunteers from the community. Proceeds from the Tour are used for the care and replacement of trees, and the Genevieve Jyurovat Scholarship.
