Heritage Gardeners garden club is in its 52nd year and has many opportunities for horticulture and floriculture education and event participation. Work goes on year round in preparation for the club’s Christmas Home Tour (the weekend before Thanksgiving) and the Spring Garden Tour.
Proceeds from these two events support the upkeep of the The Marie Workman Garden Center, Briscoe gardens, program speakers and other activities including a scholarship fund and Junior Master Gardener program.
The club meets the first Thursday of each month, September through May, at 10 a.m. Any interested individual is invited to attend.
