Sharing the wonder of Nature, through Education, Engagement, and Creativity
Members enjoy the collegiality of interacting with others who share a passion for floral design, gardens, environmental issues and for supporting and enhancing public spaces.
Over the first, or provisional year, Provisionals:
During this year the provisional will learn about the aims and goals of the club as well as our community involvement and projects.
The time commitment is approximately 20 days, from September through May, with coursework and committee meetings during daytime hours. The period from September to November is the most intensive for course work. There is an option to complete the provisional requirements over a two year period.
A member is a provisional who has successfully completed the provisional requirements. Members are expected to serve on at least one committee over a five year period. This can involve up to four hours a month to attend meetings. Members actively participate in the daily management of the club and it competitions, programmes and public projects.
Each spring, we hold an Open House in April for potential new members to learn more about our club, activities, charitable projects and membership requirements.
Our next Open House is April 23, 2020.
