Continuing Projects

Shenandoah Rose Garden Club members have continued many projects from year to year. Through these projects Shenandoah Rose members grow along with our gardens. All of our members will participate in all of our projects either by donation or physical participation. 

Several of our members are active at the annual Yellow Daisy Flower Show at Stone Mountain Park, which is sponsored by Redbud District of The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc.  We will continue to serve as photographers, hostesses and clerks and will participate in horticultural classification.  Members will enter horticultural specimens and design exhibits in the Flower Show.

Our club will have 100% participation in the “Dollars Educate Scholars” program that supports the GCG scholarship program.


The club will continue to provide Valentines for the Veterans Administration Hospital patients on Valentine’s Day in cooperation with The DeKalb County Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc.

As in past holiday seasons, participating in the Community Service program of The Garden Club of Georgia will be a source of satisfaction for our members.  We will make decorative holiday items for a nursing home or other charity in need.  Since 1977, we have sponsored the adoption of a needy family for Christmas. We will continue this project, donating toys and a grocery gift card to a family identified by the Initiative for Affordable Housing program.

We will continue to support the “Fig Leaf” project of The Garden Club of Georgia by donating underwear, clothing and toiletry items to the Atlanta Regional Hospital.

Since 2012, Shenandoah Rose Garden Club members have planted flowers in the concrete planters in front of the DeKalb Federation of Garden Clubs’ Garden Center at Callanwolde Arts Center.  Summer annuals are planted in late April to early May.  These are replaced by pansies in late September to early October each year.  These planters are viewed not only by DeKalb Federation members, but also by visitors to Callanwolde as they walk from the parking lot to the mansion.  The club has supported the “Patriotic Planting” project of the DeKalb Federation’s “Celebrating Homegrown Heroes” theme by using red, white and blue flowers in the containers. To comtinue with this project , we are seeking to partner with another club in closer proximity to Callanwolde to take on the summer watering requirement.

As part of the drive sponsored by The Garden Club of Georgia, we will continue to “Pull & Save Tabs for Ronald McDonald Houses”. This project encourages recycling and provides funding for the needs of families in these “homes away from home” while their child is being treated in a nearby Children’s Hospital.

Since 2013, the Club has made Mother’s Day corsages for the residents of Meadowbrook Nursing Home.  We will continue this project in support of The Garden Club of Georgia Community Service activities.

One member regularly volunteers at the DeKalb Federation Garden Center.  Five members serve on the DeKalb Federation Board and five serve on the Redbud District Board.

One member serves on the National Board and two on The Garden Club of Georgia Board.

One member volunteers as Webmaster for both the DeKalb Federation and Redbud District websites.

 

New Projects

Description: http://www.dekalbfederation.com/logo.jpgThe Club will support the DeKalb Federation’s Garden Therapy project “Healing Homegrown Heroes”.  Historically, the club has donated soil for the planters at the Veteran’s Administration Clinical Annex and members worked with veterans to plant flowers and perennials in the planters. 

The Club will support the Blue Star Marker project of National Garden Clubs, The Garden Club of Georgia and the DeKalb Federation by making a monetary contribution towards the restoration of an existing or construction of a new Blue Star Marker.

The Club will participate in the “Holidays for Heroes” project of the DeKalb Federation of Garden Clubs by providing holiday cards for active service members.

Club members will pursue the new “Gardening with Georgia Native Plants”, “Hummingbird Haven” and “Nesting/Roosting Boxes” certifications offered by The Garden Club of Georgia in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Non-Game Division.
