     In addition to numerous design and horticultural entries, the members serve in horticultural classification, placement, and clerking.  Each year, the club brings home hundreds of ribbons and awards.

  • Members developed two gardens at McFarlane Nature Park in East Cobb County.

 - A nectar garden surrounds the active bee hive at the park, providing nourishment for the resident bees and educational signage about the bees and plants for visitors.

 - A Memory Garden is home to native trees and shrubs that like "wet feet", and are planted in memory of members no longer with us.

Memory trees are planted at McFarlane Nature Park.  (click for larger images)

The  North Georgia State Fair flower shows, sponsored by the Marietta Council of Garden Clubs, are a busy two-week project for our members who were active participants, filling the roles of
