Live  Your 
Life 
With Plants!

The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City has a long history of serving the local community from designing and planting the Logo Garden at the Open Space to sponsoring other community projects through our grants and scholarships to help fund other worthwhile projects.  It is through education our members learn the basics of horticulture, floral and landscape design, and environmental responsibility.  This enables us to continue our service to the community we share and love.

If you would like to help us fund these projects, please donate.

Community Projects

We work with a variety of students throughout the summer instructing them on how to plant, weed, and harvest produce with the excess being given to local food pantries.

We partnered with The Botanic Garden to create a Children's Sensory Garden.  Our hardscape is installed and gardens will be planted next year.

Each year the club designs, plants, and weeds a logo garden at the Open Space in Traverse City.  Come check it out!

Each year we sell geraniums to our members and the community as a fundraiser for our club.  This money is used for projects within the community.

We decided not have a Garden Walk in 2024, but please look for us in 2025!

Only members of the club can submit a grant application for another nonprofit.

We support our veterans with a Blue Star Memorial at The Botanic Garden.
