The Adirondack Garden Club, a member of the Garden Club of America, will present a GCA Flower Show, “Mountains & Valleys”, on July 19-20th at Heaven Hill Farm in Lake Placid.
“Mountains & Valleys” will include floral design, horticulture, photography and conservation exhibits. Entries will be judged by GCA judges. It is free and open to the public on July 19 from 3 to 5 pm and on July 20 from 9 am to 2 pm. The public can learn which exhibit won the highest awards in the various classes as well as the judges’ comments.
The Adirondack Garden Club was founded in 1928 and originally named Essex County Adirondack Garden Club. It became a member of the Garden Club of America in 1933. As the club expanded into other counties, the name was changed to Adirondack Garden Club in 2015. The club’s membership comes from a geographical area of over 1800 square miles and two separate USDA climate zones.
The mission of the Adirondack Garden Club is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, to aid in the protection of native plants and birds, and to encourage civic planting and the conservation of our natural resources. At its monthly meetings, one of which each year is open to the public, these topics are discussed often with an outside expert. Conservation and education about non-native invasive species are frequent topics.
