Hershey Children's Garden Containers

The Westlake Garden Club planted two containers at the Hershey Children's Garden at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. The CBG asks affiliate members to participate in this project every year to add color and interest to the children's garden. This year's theme was plants that activate the "Senses." Club President Marsha McEntee was there to oversee the planting of one container for the sense of smell and one for the sense of touch. Some of the plants included are Heliotrope, Lily of the Valley, Peppermint, Basil, Alyssum, Borage, Ladies Mantle, Gerbera Daisy and Wooly Thyme. We hope everyone visiting the Hershey Children's Garden enjoys the fragrant and beautiful containers.

National Garden Week, June 5-11, 2016

The National Garden Clubs, Inc. designates a week in June every year as National Garden Week. They ask local garden clubs to celebrate with activities that involve the community to learn more about gardening and making good choices.

This year the Westlake Garden Club will celebrate National Garden Week with the following activities:
Monday, June 6, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. – come to Dean’s Greenhouse, 3984 Porter Road to learn how to plant a vegetable garden in a container – what vegetables work best. Bring a container to plant or purchase one there. A good selection of plants will be available.

Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. – it is never too early to get children involved in gardening. Bring your children to Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road to pick up a kit with everything needed to grow a plant from seed.

Friday, June 10, 2016, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. – stop by our table at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road to “talk to the gardeners.” Club members will be available to answer your questions and give helpful hints on growing a beautiful garden.

We hope you will join us for one, or all of the above activities to help celebrate National Garden Week.
