Twin Valleys Garden Club lives its long tradition of service to the community through a wide variety of community projects. Around 20 gardeners in this northern Chester County club meet monthly for educational programs, hands-on workshops, and outreach activity planning.

Recent activities include creating fresh floral arrangements for area Veterans’ Center events, participating with local associations in their conservation and education efforts, and maintaining a public garden at Historic Yellow Springs. Some of these projects recur each year while others are one-time activities.

TVGC members live and garden in the Pickering and Great Valleys from Malvern to East Nantmeal. Each member brings her own talents and interests to the club whether she is a gifted arranger or horticulture expert, someone who grows her own cutting gardens spring through fall or specializes in container gardening. A member may grow dazzling indoor orchids or nurture pollinators by featuring native plants in her garden, or she may be a novice gardener who is eager to know what grows best in our soil and climate.

All members regularly share their best gardening tips with other members and their guests. Members choose the outreach projects in which they will participate according to their talents, interests and calendars. The club as a group also enjoys local and regional garden tours and club trips.

Interested readers wanting more information on TVGC and the club’s upcoming programs, trips and projects, including holiday decorating, may visit www.twinvalleysgardenclub.wordpress.org or email June at twinvalleys@aol.com.
