Since 1922, Floretum Garden Club members have assisted in making Edmonds a more beautiful place for our citizens and promoting the love of gardening throughout the City. With over 100 members, we have many projects, including planting the hanging baskets for over 50 years, planting street corners, and awarding horticultural scholarships...we've also entered into newer projects such as Saturday Workshops, the Hazel Miller Plaza and Community Garden... all further cultivating the ties between gardening and our community.
"...No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture
comparable to that of the garden."

Saturday Workshop Scheduled for March 15, 10 am to Noon
Our workshop is open to the public, so plan on attending an informative and humorous presentation on Urban Chickens, with Bea Randall presenting. Bea is a Snohomish County Master Gardener, and 4-H Livestock Advisor, and her family raised show champion chickens.
This is a free event, but donations gladly accepted. Location is the Coldwell Banker Bain meeting room, 108 5th Ave. S. in Edmonds.
