Glasgow Garden Club
Glasgow Garden Club was organized in 1933 and Federated in 1937.
We have about 30 active members for 2019-2020.
The Club’s major project for the past six years has been to provide beautiful hanging baskets around the square in downtown Glasgow. Along with public and corporate support, the Club provided 36 baskets in 2019.
Other projects include:
- Maintaining the entrance to the Glasgow Municipal Cemetery
- Providing monthly Garden Therapy at local skilled nursing facilities
- Providing flowers for the Veterans’ Memorial Park
- Providing floral arrangements for annual Highland Games at Barren River State Resort Park.
- Planting a tree for Arbor Day
- Weeding and planting flowers at the Cultural Center/Museum of the Barrens
- Weeding and planting flowers at T.J. Regional Hospital
We meet monthly for programs or field trips.
We invite all who share a love of gardening to attend our meetings and join the club.

The Garden Club of Danville was formed in 1937. Its mission is to encourage the advancement of horticulture and creative design, aid in civic beautification, and promote conservation and protection of our natural resources.
Continuing projects of the Club include:
- Planting trees for Arbor Day
- Memorial gifts for planting in Danville cemeteries, as well as help with landscape design as needed by the City.
- Memorial books donated to the Boyle County Public Library. Club members also provide flower arrangements for the library for special occasions.
- We maintain three public gardens in Danville: The Mary Akin Herb Garden at Constitution Square, the Apothecary Garden at the Ephraim McDowell House, and the Humane Society Garden at the Boyle County Animal Shelter.
- The Garden Club of Danville often works with Danville and Boyle County Schools to support their gardening projects. Assistance has included financial help, consultations, and volunteering for specific tasks.
- The Club’s Garden Therapy Committee meets four times a year with the Cancer Support Group at the Commonwealth Cancer Center for a meal and garden related craft project.
Club meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month, except January and July, at 1 p.m. at the Boyle County Extension Office.
We sponsor regular workshops and field trips for members and guests. Members are encouraged to bring designs and horticultural specimens to meetings for judging and learning.
We always welcome guests, who are eligible to join after attending three meetings within six months. Annual dues are $25.

Open Gate Garden Club of Paducah
Open Gate Garden Club of Paducah, chartered in 1952, meets each second Tuesday at 1:00 p.m., with the exception of June through August.
Our membership is limited to 20 as we usually meet in members’ homes. Our dues are $25 which includes GCKY dues, $1.00 per member for ‘$ for Scholars’, ‘$ for Headquarters’, and Audubon District contribution.
Our major projects include maintaining the Airport Viewing Garden(Barkley Regional Airport), decorating Whitehaven Welcome Center: Christmas and April Quilt Show, and co-sponsoring and entering the McCracken Co. Fair flower show.
Established in 1983, the Club has planted and maintained the Viewing Garden since 1995. It is the only location that friends, family and others may watch planes arrive and depart. In 2015, a certified Monarch Waystation was added which has attracted many monarchs and other butterflies, and entertained viewers and staff as well.
Whitehaven, an 1850 mansion, became an official Kentucky Welcome Center in 1981. Six garden clubs were asked to decorate at Christmas, and we have continued annually to do so. The Music Room tree is adorned with blown-glass ornaments and during the AQS Quilt Show in April, the Club fills the room with fresh flowers.
Since 2000, the Club has co-sponsored the McCracken Co. Flower Show. Members hold various chairs and enter horticulture and design in Floral Hall each last week in June. May and June, members lead workshops on how to enter horticulture and make designs.
To raise money to support our projects, we hold yard or plant sales bi-annually. We have found it a great way to clean out the attic, thin plants and come home with ‘new’ plants and treasures.
Members also are active on the state level. Members are NGC flower show judges, plant society judges and members. Locally, individual members are involved with civic and beautification boards.
Monthly except June, July & August, second Tuesday, 1:00 p.m.
In member homes or other selected places.
