Arbor Day trees given to fourth graders
Since the 1980's, our club has celebrated Arbor Day by presenting a program about trees and tree planting to the fourth graders of Hudson Public Schools. This year, the 13 classes of fourth graders at East Woods School attended the presentation. As has been our club's tradition, each student received the gift of a young White Pine tree to take home and plant. Members of the club had packaged each of the 400 trees in a manner that allows them to survive a trip home in a bookbag and a delay before planting.
Spring floral design workshop
The Gardener-to-Garden Committee and Flower Arranging Committee teamed up to offer a Spring Flower Arranging Workshop on April 13, 2017. Participants each brought a vase or container from home and two items from their garden to use with the flowers provided. Because of this, each arrangement was unique and personal to the designer. Thanks again to Barb Earnhardt and Dorothy Malpass for going the extra mile to plan and execute this fun and informative afternoon and to Nancy Forhan for her helpful assistance.
Club Grants Funding for Area Projects
The Hudson Garden Club is pleased to announce its 2016 grants provided to organizations in the greater Akron/Cleveland area. These grants are designed to support the organization’s mission: to encourage the knowledge and love of gardening, the beautification of public property and the support of education in horticultural and related fields.
This year’s recipients include:
Library donations benefit the community
Every year Hudson Garden Club donates many books, magazines, videos and youth books to the Hudson Library and Historical Society. Books that are donated in memory of members include a book plate with the member's name. Funds for this community outreach are raised via the annual Home and Garden Tour in June. This is but one of the ways that the club fulfills its mission to spread the love and knowledge of gardening. A list of the 2016 titles is available here.
