Floral Art,Garden Clubs & Horticultural Societies

28apr2012 068-230x153Gardening can be a very personal experience in our own private gardens. Yet a large part of the gardening experience revolves around sharing, love and fellowship. This sort of fellowship can often be found by joining a garden club or a Horticultural/Floral Arts Society.
 
As well as meeting many friends who share a similar interest, you are tapping into the collective wisdom of the group, which is often considerable.Knowledge and years of experience are two of the most important factors contributing to truly successful gardening, especially in its more advanced forms as an art. With the help of a friendly garden group learning and experience can be a delight. Soon you will find yourself rewarded with lovely gardens and gardening experiences with others that will warm your heart, brighten your soul and enrich your spirit.
 
Garden clubs come in as many shapes, sizes and purposes as the plants and flowers their members so dearly love. Many have on-going education programs that include organized unit courses on plant knowledge, design, landscaping, all aspects of floral arts, vegetable growing, and just about anything else you would ever want to know on the subject.
 
Other groups tend to be more community social circles involved in charity work and fund raising whose members share a common love of nature and gardening. Some clubs attract a specific age, socioeconomic, or interest group. Then there are those clubs that revolve around a personality or core group which you'll either like or you'd probably not feel comfortable joining. While others are a really delightful mixed bag.

So don't get discouraged if at first you don't find what you are looking for; keep on searching until you find the group and situation that's right for you!
