Marietta Daisies Garden Club

Garden Week of Georgia Dates


Dear Club Presidents,

Sorry for any confusion about

Garden Week in Georgia.

We had it on the website calendar for April 14-20.

The information sent yesterday has April 21-27.

The first week of April starts with the week of April 7 since the week before starts on a Monday NOT Sunday.

Anyway, which ever week you celebrate it, it will count for #60 award and credit on the president’s report.



Best regards,

 

Lisa

Garden Week in Georgia and National Garden Week

GCG clubs are encouraged to observe Garden Week in Georgia. Plant a tree, a garden, provide floral designs for the courthouse or conduct a public program.

Garden Week is usually held the third week in April. The Georgia Department of Economic Development is partnering with GCG to encourage tourism by promoting garden tours and gardening events during this week. Advertise Garden Week in Georgia at your local nurseries, grocery stores, library and churches.

  • Organize public or private gardens open for tours during garden week. Advertise Garden Week on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

  • Involve school children in the week's events—plant flowers at the school.

  • Take flowers and a poster to the local library, town council, etc.

  • Hold a home and garden tour.

  • Be a docent at a garden tour, hold a plant sale, have an antique show, a book signing, host a lecture, hold an art workshop in the garden, promote your town's local flower during Garden Week, produce a segment on local television, or one for the local paper.

  • Be sure to take photos of all your activities!

  • Proclamation Template - Word document that you can download to use if you wish your Mayor or City Council to proclaim Garden Week in GA.

  • Printable Flyer  - To post in your community and on your social media pages.

Remember to take photographs of any activities your club does that week to promote Garden Week in Georgia.  Your club gets credit on the annual Club President's report for participation.   

You can also apply for Award # 60 [A state certificate may be awarded for the best overall promotion of Garden Week in Georgia. Entry must show at least two activities.
