Our chapter was invited to create an educational display for the Cardinal Council of Garden Clubs’ Flower Show in June. The theme was “Preserving Our SOKY Environment.” Our focus was “Healing the Earth, One Yard at a Time” with tips and techniques for landscaping with native plants in your own yard, thus making your land a haven for wildlife and contributing to the effort to create a Homegrown National Park. We used books, handouts, posters, and of course some native plants to create a tiered display.
There were three educational exhibits at the flower show, and our table won first prize! Nine people asked to be added to our mailing list. We’ll be using the yard-sign and table covers at more of our events, and the posters can be reused, too.
