News from the Adair County Garden Club

When the days are cold and wet it's easy to let yourself slide into one of those blue funks and begin to feel like it's going to last forever.

Becoming a part of the Adair County Garden Club is so much more than gardening.


The Garden Club meets at 1pmCT on the 4th Thursday of each month in a variety of locations. Each meeting is designed to expand your knowledge of gardening techniques, landscape ideas, environmental issues, natural resources, birds, wildlife and more. For more information contact Barbara Armitage at 270-250-2979.

Every member of the Adair County Garden Club has a story. This is Jeanne's.
"Moving to Kentucky from Atlanta was a major lifestyle change for me. I was so glad to be out of the corporate business world, glad to be away from the terrible Atlanta traffic and away from the "a little too close" neighbors in our Georgia cul de sac. I loved our Kentucky farm and our big old barn and I immediately fell in love with all the many different animals that soon started arriving. I loved sitting on the back porch watching the sun come up in the morning and the front porch watching it go down at night. I was happy and at peace.

"But I missed my friends.

"About a year before we moved to Kentucky I had started following the Adair County Garden Club on the Columbia Magazine. While sitting in the miserable Atlanta traffic, I so much wanted to be a part of making bird houses, counting birds in the Great Backyard Bird Count, learning about rose gardening and simply gardening Kentucky style. Seemed like every month the Garden Club was doing something I really wanted to be a part of.

"After being here a few months I sought out the Garden Club and joined. I quickly found the friends I had been missing. Friends that share many of the same interests I have and friends that I look forward to see every month and sometimes more often. I am certainly learning a lot, going to places I probably would have never sought out like our trips to Casey County greenhouses and shops. I've served over 200 sausage biscuits at Down Town Days, I've tended roses at the Trabue-Russell house and so much more.

"The friends that I have made at the ACGC are pretty much the icing on the cake for our move to Kentucky."
Everyone's welcome at the Adair County Garden Club - even if you live in Atlanta!

The Garden Club meets at 1pmCT on the 4th Thursday of each month in a variety of locations. Each meeting is designed to expand your knowledge of gardening techniques, landscape ideas, environmental issues, natural resources, birds, wildlife and more.

We are committed to making Adair County a more beautiful, safer and healthier place to live. Adair County Garden Club members take pride in our community and invite you join us and make a difference. - Barbara Armitage
