I just started a Garden Club here in Wood Village Oregon. And really excited to begin. I was sitting here thinking that Wood Village doesn’t have a garden club. So I stated doing some home work online to see what went in to starting one. Its not going to be a real big club something more intimate and personal. When it gets to big its not fun anymore and there are alot more rules and costs to a larger club.I made it once a month on every 3rd Thursday from 7:00- 8:00. I would love to have any ideas or suggestions from my friends here at GT. First meeting is April 18th and i am going to do a get to know each other meeting. I will copy some sheet’s of blank paper and they can write down Name,email,phone, and a little about them self’s and whats there favorite flowers and what kind of garden are they growing.I will take pictures and keep everyone here at GT informed of the progress.

-- I love hostas:)

how wonderful
you could use GT as your Club’s “blog”.
I’ve never participated in a garden club so I am of no help there—but if I were to join one, what would I expect… hmmm seed/plant exchange, obviously, connecting with other gardeners interested in living off the land, organics, etc…. and maybe some community gardening and/or preserving sessions.
So for that first meeting I’d definitely want to know who was into veggies and who was into flowers.

Maybe compost sharing – one person has lots of space or the means to compost, but not enough fodder, another person has tons of kitchen scraps, but no composting set up. Or labor-sharing on big projects – you three help me move these pavers today (and I’ve got pie and coffee for you), tomorrow we’ll help Marge fill in those new raised planter boxes with that dirt she just had delivered, I’ll bring my wheelbarrow – you know, like that.

As well as having your members fill in an info sheet re. the type of gardening they do….you might ask them what in particular they would like to learn about gardening, ie how to compost, how to treat certain garden problems, how to prune properly, etc.
