Formed in 1960 as a neighborhood garden club, there are currently 22 members from all parts of south Lexington. We are active participants in the Lexington Council of Garden Clubs projects, including the biennial garden tour and Lexington in Bloom contest, and the annual flower show. Our club meets on the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. We meet at members’ homes or have field trips. Program topics have included vegetable gardening, worm composting, and how to prepare horticulture specimens for flower shows. Several members are expert gardeners in day lilies and roses. Our club’s civic project is the Waveland herb garden where we have received monarch butterfly waystation certification.
The Bardstown Garden Club members enjoy sharing gardening and horticulture tips, learning floral design, and working on community beautification projects.

The Beechmont Garden Club was started in 1933 and federated in 1934. Our members live throughout Jefferson and the surrounding counties. Our various programs consist of speakers on gardening related topics, garden tours & crafts, and a yearly community service project. We maintain the gardens at the Iroquois Library.
The Garden Clubs of Noble Park advise the Parks Department on planting, maintenance and design, in addition to actively maintain several planting areas. The objectives for 2013-14 are: Plant replacements for hardwood trees lost and/or damaged in the 2009 Ice Storm; and re-establish the Children’s Memorial Garden that was completely destroyed in that storm. Nineteen different varieties of dogwoods are the focus of the garden that was planted in 1996 in honor of the 19 children killed in the Oklahoma City bombing, and all children who have tragically died. Included in Paducah’s April 19, Arbor Day Celebration at the park will be re-dedication of the garden and tree and perennial planting by children.

The Bowling Green Garden Club was organized in 1934, federated in 1935 and now has over 40 active members. Each month’s meeting includes a timely program of interest along with the official meeting. Special monthly meetings may include a tour of a member’s or other local garden to encourage gardening enthusiasm and education.
The year begins with the September meeting. In November, club members decorate a Christmas tree at the Eloise B. Houchens Center, an historic house in Bowling Green. The December meeting is generally the Christmas Auction at a special festive location where guests are included. The Club participates in Golden Days by delivering daffodils to members, family and friends who are shut-ins or are ill during March. This May we will have a special end-of-the-year meeting. In June, we will celebrate National Garden Week with a Fairy Garden Tour.
The Club donates regularly to the Cardinal Council’s H.A.N.D.S. program which plants memorial trees in Bowling Green, and maintains the Blue Star Memorial Marker on Adams Street. This year our projects will include supporting the landscaping of the Monarch Waystation, the Blue Star Marker and other activities. The Christmas auction, the Fairy Garden Tour and other small fundraisers such as plant sales allow the Club to support these important projects.
Annual dues are $20 and guests are always welcome. Please contact us at BGGardenClub@gmail.com for further information.
