We work with the City of Colleyville and with our Parks Manager to help fund various garden-related projects for our city such as plantings for the Blue Star Memorial on Highway 26, wind sculptures installed in McPherson Park, and the Veterans’ Memorial at Sparger Park. We create holiday wreaths for several of our city buildings, participate in Arbor Day, and work with some of our schools on special gardens.
The Garden Club leads several workshops a year for residents at our local senior residences. Our senior citizens especially look forward to creating floral arrangements to brighten their rooms.
We provide several scholarships valued up to $1000 each for students from GCISD who meet the criteria set by the Executive Board. The principle requirement has been that the student be enrolled in an accredited college or university and that he or she be engaged in a course of study related to horticulture.
Yard of the Season
We recognize outstanding yards in our community with a monetary award and a sign designating the yard as a Yard of the Month. As this program is most active during our primary growing seasons, it has become more seasonal than monthly. We welcome suggestions from the community.
