Perennial Planters

PERENNIAL PLANTER CO-CHAIRS: Dorothy Burt & Michelle Humphrey

The Perennial Planters Group offers the opportunity to learn, in a smaller group setting, about perennial gardening, as well as scheduling workshops for members to create their own unique landscape art objects.  

During colder months, the group meets to discuss gardening topics,  from presentations on growing specific perennials to hands-on workshops for creating unique garden art objects.  In  warmer months, field trips are organized to special gardens.  Some tours involve day trips and others explore wonderful gardens in our community.   

The Perennial Planters also assist with the club's Annual Perennial Plant Sale.   Perennials are dug, potted, labeled, displayed and sold to raise funds for the garden club's civic beautification activities.   For info, click on Events
