For people who can’t attend a garden club during the day, the Orchard Park Garden Club has expanded to include an evening branch called the Seedlings.
“We hope to attract members from the Orchard Park Community and perhaps nearby: West Seneca, Hamburg, East Aurora,” said Carol-Jo Pope, Seedlings liaison and member of the Orchard Park Garden Club.
The next meeting of Seedlings will take place at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14 in the lower level meeting room of the Orchard Park Municipal Building, 4295 South Buffalo St., Orchard Park. Early birds can arrive at 6 p.m.
The meetings will take place the second Tuesday of each month.
The Seedlings share in all the benefits and fun of a garden club membership, she said. Monthly meetings offer a variety of themed programs and activities emphasizing horticulture, design, environment, community beautification and education.
The enlarged garden club will maintain its present community commitments and aims to expand its community involvement. Club members also enjoy an affiliation with the 28 clubs of Erie VI Section of the Eighth District Federated Garden Clubs of New York State, Inc. and membership in National Garden Clubs, Inc.
