The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City, MI

  Growing the Future...Love Blossoms & Joy Abounds! 


If you are new to Traverse City and enjoy gardening or anything relating to horticulture, flower arranging, the environment and more, you may want to visit one of the Friendly Garden Club meetings! In 2017 our club will hold monthly meetings from April through November, where we feature guest speakers, have hands-on projects, and field trips, all emphasizing horticultural tips and the love of gardening.  This is reflected in our annual projects such as the Garden Walk, geranium sale, and the planting of the "open space" by the Bay.  All monies raised from our projects are totally given back to the community by way of grants and scholarships.  To attend any of our "OPEN" meetings or become a member, please send an email to our membership chairperson, Letha.  We would love to have you join us in 2017!  See what being a "FRIENDLY" is all about!
