Welcome Smyrna Georgia Gardeners
Jonquil Garden Club
Welcome to the Jonquil Garden Club of Smyrna GA. We are one of Smyrna's oldest clubs that was chartered on Sept. 21, 1937 with 18 members and Mrs. Lewis Anderson as 1st president. By 1939, JGC became a member of the Federated Garden Clubs of Georgia and In 2012 we celebrated our 75th year. Our activities and efforts helped Smyrna become the Jonquil City of the South as we planted the first jonquils on the front lawn of the Baptist Children's Home in Hapeville.
Jonquil Garden Club is a civic minded group and very involved with Keep Smyrna Beautiful. Members have planted bushes, flowers and, of course, jonquils through out the city. We helped start the Jonquil Festival and participated in Rich's Garden Center downtown that eventually became the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Activities over the years include many Flower Shows and the North Georgia State Fair.
Our members include women and men, life long gardeners, those just starting and all are welcome. We meet the 4th Tuesday of each month (except June, July & August) at Smyrna Public Library from 10:30 to 12:30. Our business meeting is followed by a presentation, plant sale or field trip. Our annual Garden & Plant Sale in June raises money for projects and a scholarship fund that awards money to students pursuing a horticultural career.
For information, please contact us at email@example.com. or our President, Shirley Priest at 770 433-2424, firstname.lastname@example.org.
