Plant Maryland with SEEDS of growth through education
The President’s theme for the next two years is: Plant Maryland with SEEDS of growth through education. When we think about why we joined a garden club, high on the list was a desire to learn more about how plants grow, how to design a landscape, how to create floral designs, and how we can garden for wildlife and conserve our environment. Our schools, field trips, special events, and meetings all serve as learning experiences. In turn, we share this knowledge when we take on civic projects, sponsor garden therapy or youth activities, or open our personal gardens to others.
The President’s Project is a project to enhance the grounds at The SEED school of Maryland to include native plantings to attract pollinators and beautify the campus. The 52 acre campus is home to Maryland’s only public, College-prep boarding school for students in grades 6-12 and provides motivated children with an extraordinary educational experience. The 400 students live on campus tuition free 24/5, and graduate with the proficiency for success in college and beyond. Ninety percent of graduates go on to attend college.
This President will do her best to promote the ideals of our organization, and to assist members in any way possible. Your input is always welcome, and I hope that you will invite me to your meetings and events.
