Love to garden? Want to learn more about houseplants and floral arranging?
Interested in matters of conservation? Come check out The Garden Club of Cranford at one of its upcoming monthly meetings.
Founded in 1927, the Garden Club of Cranford ("GCC") is a volunteer organization involved in various aspects of gardening, horticulture, conservation and community beautification.
Comprised of approximately 25 members, the Club holds a monthly business meeting which includes a formal educational program on a gardening related topic and a social tea. In addition, the Club engages in a number of ongoing projects including providing floral arrangements for Mobile Meals of Union County and the Jardine Academy's annual prom, maintaining the planters at the entrance to the Cranford Public Library and raising funds to award an annual college scholarship.
Most recently, the Club embraced the holiday season with two community based projects: the Cranford Junior Woman's Club "Home for the Holidays" House Tour and the Street Life Ministries Holiday Banquet.
Using the members' considerable floral arranging talents, the GCC provided floral decorations to capture the holiday spirit at a Madison Avenue home that was among those featured on this year's House Tour.
Later in December, members of the Club created 75 stunning floral centerpieces for the Street Life Ministries Holiday Banquet held at the Winfield Scott Hotel in Elizabeth.
Looking ahead, the Garden Club of Cranford has plans for a late spring wedding themed floral fundraiser, proceeds of which will be used in part to fund their annual scholarship and to support the Club's community based activities.
