Welcome to the Westlake Garden Club's website. Learn about the organization, keep up with events and enjoy looking at our photo galleries.

Looking Ahead to 2019

The Westlake Garden Club enjoyed an active and successful 2018.  We provided interesting and educational programs for our members, were involved in civic projects within the City and surrounding communities, and hosted a very enjoyable biennial fundraiser luncheon.  We tried a new model for our Board last year, with more committees assuming responsibilities instead of indiviual members.  The Board will determine if that was successful.  Membership remained stable and we have already gained several new members for 2019. The Club takes a respite during January and February with normal schedule starting in March.  We look forward to another year of programs that will educate and inspire us.  A listing of programs will be available in March.  We, along with most clubs and civic organizations today, are faced with the challenge of maintaining and growing membership.  We welcome anyone who has an interest in gardening, horticulture, the environment, trees and nature in general, to join us for a meeting.  Meetings are the third Wednesday of each month, March through December and are at Westlake Porter Public Library, unless an outing or fieldtrip is planned. Visit this website frequently for more information and to keep up to date on our schedule.

Reforesting the Forest City

The garden club's November program, Reforesting the Forest City, will be held on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Westlake Porter Public Library.  This is a collaborative effort between Porter Library and the Westlake Garden Club.  Sandra Albro from the Holden Forests will be joined by Cathi Lehn from the City of Cleveland Office of Sustainability.  They will discuss their joint effort to return the canopy of trees to its glory as the “Forest City.”  The city planning commission has adopted a 25 year plan to halt the rapid shrinkage of the city's tree canopy.  This collaboration also includes LAND Studio  and Western Reserve Land Conservatory. Non-garden club members should register with the library at 440-871-2600.  We hope to see you then.
