A PLANT A DAY

Screenshot_20200622-122312_Email

To promote a sense of togetherness during this time of “Social Distancing”, Tina Worrell, Clermont Garden Club Corresponding Secretary, suggested members share a favorite plant from their garden. Tina also took on the responsibility of emailing pictures and plant information daily to members. Members look forward to seeing what everyone is growing and enjoy the daily virtual garden show. What a great way to stay in touch.

CGC National Garden Club Award Winner

20200615_130802

Marilyn Paone, Clermont Garden Club President, announced that Clermont Garden Club  won a National Garden Club Award for our Facebook page and one for our Fun with Flowers workshop. Clermont Garden Club will be receiving certificates for these awards.

 

Alice Barrows, as Education Chairman, arranged for us to have a Fun with Flowers workshop on Pot-et-Fleur last October to help prepare members for our upcoming Flower Show. Vicki Hearst, Horticulturist, and Maureen Tuber, District VII Judges Council Chairman and accredited judge, gave a wonderful and informative presentation on Pot-et-Fleur at our clubhouse. They discussed the history, guidelines, and different creative designs of Pot-et-Fleur (which means “Pot and Flowers”) that were introduced in France around 1960. Vicki demonstrated the process by arranging plants and explaining the balance of the plants and container, contrast, proportion, rhythm and scale. Attendees had fun creating their own Pot-et-Fleur to take home to enjoy. Congratulations Alice on a job well done!!   The award application was written and submitted by Gwen Carter.
Our Facebook page is maintained by Gwen Carter, Social Media Chairman, and is to connect the garden club community and the public to our programs, civic activities, and community outreach. It opens up a portal for sharing information with our own club members and the public plus members of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs District VII and other districts, Deep South Garden Clubs, and National Garden Club. Way to go Gwen!! The award application was written and submitted by Gwen Carter.

Beautifying and Maintaining CGC’s Garden While Practicing Social Distancing

The scheduled work day had taken a break because of the stay-at-home and social distancing orders due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.

Volunteers seemed happy to get back into the garden with their fellow gardeners to continue the beautification process.  It was amazing to see the “new normal” with everyone working together, wearing their masks, practicing social distancing, getting the job done (weeding, pruning), and general maintenance of the garden.

The day was beautiful and the weather was perfect.
