Welcome

Welcome to the Burnett Garden Club Blog. You will find information on our club about meetings and events as well as important links. We will also use this blog as an educational and inspirational tool as our mission is to promote education and enthusiasm about gardening in and around our homes and communities to energize our members and to get our creative juices flowing.

Most of our meetings take place at the Grantsburg High School at 6:30 PM on the second Thursday of the month (September through May). All meetings are open to the public. In the winter months, we have educational speakers, videos/slideshows and workshops at our meetings. During the summer months, we have no formal meetings, instead we use our time to learn by going on garden tours and nursery trips.

Our club has a fundraiser Plant Sale in the spring, an annual Community Garden Tour in the summer (local members' and community gardens), and we plant and maintain the Grantsburg sign garden on Highway 70 west of town, the flagpole garden at Memory Lake and in 2015 we will be designing and planting the gardens at the new Grantsburg Library addition. As of 2012, we belong to the Grantsburg Chamber of Commerce! In 2013 and 2014 our club participated in Grantoberfest. We hope to make this an annual event.

We have a summer and a holiday potluck and in the spring members host a Victorian Tea Party. Please scroll through our posts for pictures of these events as well as workshops and guest speakers. Check out our calendar, minutes of past meetings, next meeting, and our current and past officers using the the tab links.
