Clermont Garden Club Celebrates National Garden Week for the Month of June at Cooper Memorial Library

National Garden Week is sponsored by the National Garden Club, Inc. from June 6 – 12, 2021. A group of Clermont Garden Club (CGC) members created this artful window display at the library, which will be featured for the month of June.  The National Garden Week is designed to introduce more people to gardening, to encourage them to enjoy gardening and bring more awareness about  the importance of gardening, especially to new gardeners.  Pictured in front of the display are CGC members and co-chairman for the display Tina Worrell (left) and Arlene Rand (right).

In addition to the display, the Clermont Garden Club shares plant on a monthly basis with the library in order to foster community awareness and connect the public to our programs, civic activities and community outreach.  Our members meet every third Wednesday of the month September through May (except scheduled field trips, holiday luncheons and end of the year luncheons), at 9:30 am at the clubhouse, located at 849 West Avenue, Clermont FL, 34711.

Community members are encouraged to go see our award winning scarecrow “Miss Clara” in the display.  She is surrounded by everything she loves, (plants, flowers, butterflies, gardening books, garden art, gardening tools etc.).  For more information on becoming a member, or for Clubhouse Rental, visit our website at: http//www.ClermontGardenClub.com.
