National Garden Week is a time to acknowledge the importance of gardening and the contributions of gardeners. During the annual event, June 1-7, Garden Clubs in America and around the world work to educate and promote gardening as well as encourage everyone to get involved.
Jackie Westfield, president, and other members of the Aldersgate Garden Club attended an official designation of National Garden Week by Cleveland Vice Mayor Avery Johnson to be June 1-7.
Several activities have been planned throughout the week, including planting flowers at the front entrance of the Museum Center at Five Points and the cleanup and maintenance of the club’s Adopt-A-Spot on East and Inman streets. Through donations from Lowe’s Home Improvement and Ace Hardware, Aldersgate Garden Club members were able to carry out these projects.
The club’s activities are in support of the National Garden Clubs Inc., Deep South Region, District III and the Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs.
