The Azalea Garden Club of Manning celebrated National Garden Week by delivering 17 floral arrangements to businesses in downtown Manning.
The Azalea Garden Club has done this for the past 15 years. Marie Land, special projects committee chair, said that this is something that National Garden Clubs, Inc. encourages clubs across the nation to do every year.
Club members grow the flowers in their own gardens and come up with different beautiful flower arrangements.
“This is a great time to help others become informed and involved with garden club goals,” said Dorothy Richardson, National Garden Week Chairman for the Garden Club of South Carolina, Inc. “It is our responsibility to promote gardening and environmental responsibility to our communities and families.”
The Garden Club of South Carolina is a non-profit organization that promotes all aspects of gardening, focusing on preservation and restoration of historic gardens, conservation and environmental protection of natural resources, education of members and youth organizations, civic beautification, horticulture and floral design.
Azalea Garden Club of Manning is a member of the Manning Council of Garden Clubs, and is part of the 235 clubs that make up the Garden Club of South Carolina.
