  • Title: GardenOntario: Athens Garden Club & Horticultural Society
    Descriptive info: Athens Garden Club & Horticultural Society.. Welcome to the web site of Athens Garden Club & Horticultural Society!.. Athens Garden Club 10th Anniversary Address by Jean Brassington.. "I bring regrets from Mary Slade, our President, who was unable to be here tonight as she had to go out of town.. We were looking forward to doing this together, as the original president and the current president, and the only members to have served continuously on the Executive since the formation of the Club,".. "First I'd like to acknowledge the contribution of all of our presidents.. We've had seven: After me - in my day it was a much simpler job! - came Jim Cairns (who sadly passed away shortly afterwards) then Louise Richards, followed by Ursula Quantz, then Elaine Delves and Kathy Nichol as Co-Presidents and, currently, Mary.. They have each contributed significantly to the evolution of our Club.. Let's give all of them a hand,".. "Twenty-six of our members have served as members of the Executive since we began.. Currently, we have 15 executive members, each making an essential contribution to the vitality and uniqueness of Athens Garden Club.. So if you haven't served yet, it's your turn next! Thank you, Executive members, on behalf of all of us, for everything you do,".. "Tonight we'd like to give a token of recognition to an elite few, the people who have been members and loyal supporters of the Club continuously for the past ten years.. We're supposed to give you a ten-year OHA pin, but we thought you'd rather have a plant! We chose rosemary, symbol of remembrance.. Please come up as I name you:".. Pat Blanchard, Executive Member.. Elaine Delves, Past President.. Dorothy Earl.. Helen Earl.. Linda Earl, our Club Photographer.. Paul Fritz, Life Member.. Bonnie Laforty.. David Russo, Life Member.. Otie Vanderkloet.. "We also have rosemary plants for two other people we would like to recognize.. The first joined the Club in its second year, 2004, was on the Executive by 2005 and has been there ever since.. She has been President, Memory Garden Coordinator, and Fundraiser, and created the highly-successful Tree of Knowledge program - most of these roles simultaneously! It's inconceivable to imagine Athens Garden Club without Ursula Quantz.. We owe you a great deal,".. "We also want to recognize Jean Marr, who was with us at the beginning, but unable to attend for health reasons for a couple of years later on.. She's a fount of gardening wisdom and we are so glad to have her back.. I don't know whether we're more grateful to Jean for her loyal support, or to Laurie Wight for faithfully driving her every month to our meetings,".. "Finally I'd like to express our appreciation to David and Colleen for their wonderful hospitality this evening and present a donation on behalf of the Club to the charity they support through this garden, Our Kenyan Kids.. ".. Monthly Meetings.. Date: Third Tuesday of the month (except July, August and December; no meetings).. Time: 7 p.. Location: Athens District High School, 21 Church Street, Athens.. Our meetings feature guest speakers and social time in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.. See.. for a list of our speakers and meeting topics in 2013.. Join Us.. Everyone is welcome.. We invite you to become a member.. Annual fees are:.. Individual; $10.. Couple; $15.. Alternatively, try us on for size, or come to meetings when you can, for $3.. 00 per evening.. About Us.. We are a lively, active group that includes all age groups, with varying levels of horticultural expertise from novice to very experienced, and a shared love of gardening.. The club was founded in February, 2003 and response by community residents was enthusiastic.. Since then, the club has moved from its original location to larger quarters at Athens District High School and has taken  ...   team of club members erected a sundial, donated by a Club member, and created a circular rose garden around it, which they planted with eleven 'Hope for Humanity' roses.. In June, 2005, the garden was formally opened by the mayor of Athens and a sign bearing the name of the garden, designed and donated by Keith Heine of Heritage Signs, was unveiled.. On Remembrance Day, 2006, a black granite memorial bearing the names of the eleven soldiers was unveiled and the garden was dedicated to their memory by Padre Blair Ross, NFB Kingston, at a moving public ceremony in which family members of the soldiers participated.. The garden is maintained by members of the Club.. Dancy Park Tree Planting, 2004.. In April 2004, the club sponsored a four-session workshop series, open to all members of the community, entitled 'Take Time for Trees'.. As a sequel to the course participants created an earth berm and planted twelve pine and spruce trees in Dancy Park, a previously featureless rectangular area of mown grass.. Thirty shrubs, including willow, highbush cranberry and red twig dogwood, were also planted in the park.. The construction of the berm involved moving more than 30 tonnes of topsoil by wheelbarrow about 80 meters across the park - during the wettest Spring conditions experienced for many years!.. 'Albert's Gardens' Climate Change Project, 2005-2008.. In October, 2005, a group of volunteers from the club planted 300 'Red Emperor' tulips, provided by the National Capital Commission, at the Cenotaph flower bed in Memorial Park, Athens, as participants in a project to assess climate change.. Eleven horticultural societies in the region planted the same number of the same kind of tulip during the same week.. Students from Athens District High School recorded specific information daily in 2006, 2007 and 2007, during the growth cycle of the tulips.. The data from all sites was analyzed by Mississippi Field Naturalists, as part of a study named for Albert, a Lanark County gardener who observed the spring growth of plants in his garden.. Athens District Health Center Garden, 2008.. During 2007 and 2008, the Athens District Health Center building was renovated and extended.. On completion of the work, Athens Garden Club and Township of Athens Community in Blooms teamed up to jointly fund, design and plant a new garden at the front of the building.. The garden was planted with shrubs and perennials in the fall of 2008.. The plantings have thrived and the attractive setting is much appreciated by staff and clients of the Health Center.. New Garden at Athens District Public Library, 2008-2011.. Our latest project is the creation of a new garden in front of Athens Public Library, a heritage stone building which was formerly Front of Yonge Township Hall.. The garden is intended to demonstrate what can be done to meet the demands of a changing climate.. The Club is grateful for the assistance of the O.. H.. A.. which has awarded a grant of $500.. 00 towards costs of this project.. In October, 2008, a contest was announced, open to area residents as well as members of the Club, to select a design for the garden.. Design criteria included low maintenance demands; water conservation and drought tolerance; use of native plants; re-cycling; and food and shelter for beneficial insects and birds.. A panel of judges chose the best three designs entered in the contest, which were then displayed at the Library during March, 2009, so that members of the public could vote for their favorite design.. The winner was Athens Garden Club member, Terri Olivo.. During the summer of 2010, flower beds and a walkway were constructed and a tree, shrubs and Spring-flowering bulbs were planted.. Perennials and decorative features, including benches, birdbath, bird-feeder and trough gardens, will be added to complete the garden this Spring.. Web Counter.. Last Updated: 2014-01-10..
