Marietta Daisies & the Birney Memorial Rose Garden
PTA President. “The Birney Memorial Rose Garden is a wonderful place to reflect on the National PTA’s 125 years advocating for our children.”
The Birney Memorial Rose Garden is maintained by Marietta Daisies Garden Club volunteers, known as the “Daisy Darlings.” Collectively, the Daisy Darlings donate more than 100 man hours/year to prune, plant, and nurture this community treasure.
“Our members are extremely dedicated to preserving the memory of our Marietta PTA legacy — Alice McLellan Birney,” states Lyric Resmondo Garten, Marietta Daisies president. “Our membership has a passion for gardening, but also education. Many of our members are former/current teachers and PTA members and officers.”
Donations are accepted to help with the maintenance and repair cost. Most recently, Daisy Darling/artist, Melissa Snyder, created a beautiful illustration which has been made into notecards and a limited-edition print to help offset expenses of stone repair. These items can be purchased online through the Marietta Daisies website at mariettadaisies.wixsite.com/gardenclub/birney-rose-garden.
Founded in 2015, the Marietta Daisies Garden Club is an organization of women committed to beautification, education, service and leadership in our community. The organization is a member of the Laurel District, within the Marietta Garden Council, Inc, which is overseen by the Garden Club of Georgia.
