A new gardening year begins!

Gardening makes you patient and humble. It insists that you observe seasons and weather, putting you in sync with the natural world. It permits you to get unapologetically dirty. It’s most satisfying to grow from seed-you create and sustain life.

Gardening gives you a sense of wonder. To grow plants is to give life. It keeps you busy with a purpose, shows you how to care, be gentle, and wait. It is an amazing feeling.

Gardening is very creative. Picking the right plant for the right spot, mixing colors, and making sure there is interest for every season really is a skill and challenge.

Join us for our 2022 year with the Burlington Area Garden Club as we nurture our minds with informative speakers and nurture our gardens with planting and growing beautiful areas in Burlington. We meet the second Tuesday of each month at the Senior Activity Center located at 587 E. State Street, Burlington. We gather at 6:30 p.m. to greet and meet one another with the speaker starting at 7:00 p.m. This is followed by a business meeting to review and make plans for our gardens.

Come check us out! There is no obligation to join the club but you will probably want to after you see the joy we share in gardening and with one another.
