The Chippewa Garden Club (CGC) welcomes you to our 68th year! We have a wonderful 2017 planned –full of educational programs and civic projects. Check out our 2017 Yearbook for all our planned activities.

This Weekend:

This weekend is Home Days in Brecksville!  The Garden Club will have their usual booth Friday through Sunday.  Please visit!  You can ask gardening questions, pick up a free seed package, and take a chance on a barn quilt painting.  The painting is 3 ft. by 3 ft., on wood, and can be hung inside or outside.  Tickets are $2 or three for $5.  (Winner need not be present to win.)

 

Coming in July:

We are presenting our biennial Flower Show, “This Land is Our Land”, on July 22 and 23, 2017, at the Brecksville Community Center.  The theme of this flower show celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Cleveland Metroparks.  See our flyer for details.  Flower shows are gifts to the community….come and learn about floral design and horticulture by seeing what we’ve grown and designed.

This Year:

For 2017 our President has chosen a theme of “Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Cleveland Metroparks”. The Cleveland Metroparks, for many of our garden club members, has played a large role in our lives.  Some of us grew up with the reservations as our backyards or playgrounds. Others have discovered the Metroparks later — maybe when we began raising our own families.  Many of us will be resolving this year to visit some of the Metroparks areas that we aren’t as familiar with.

The highlight of 2017 will be our biennial Flower Show.  No surprise here — the theme will be “This Land is Our Land”.  The Divisions and Sections will all mention the various reservations and locations within the “Emerald Necklace”.  We are all looking forward to this July 2017 event and all the preparations leading up to it.
