Fall 2019 Message

Trish Bender at National Garden Club headquarters Happy Autumn! Whether it’s back to school, back to meetings or simply back to spending evenings outside, I think we can all agree this is a beautiful time of year to be in garden club.  In a way we too are going back to school as we sharpen our skills and our knowledge of gardening, landscape and floral design, pollinators and environmental awareness. 

It was so wonderful to see over 300 of you at our garden club kick-starter, the SUMMER EXPO 2019. Our GCSC Officers and Board members truly outdid themselves to give you the most informative and exciting kick off to a year of Gardening FOR Life! Your record attendance and appreciation is well worth all of the volunteer preparations and sponsorship that made the day possible. I look forward to seeing how you blossom with this new Garden FOR Life initiative.

As promised, we are rolling out several exciting member’s benefits this quarter beginning with our new GCSC user-friendly website, the first editions of The Scoop Newsletter, and our First Friday Conference Calls for club officers. Each of these tools is designed with your needs in mind. As an all-volunteer federation, we understand how eager you are to make the most of your garden club service and we are invested in your success.  Together, we make South Carolina greener and more beautiful.  Thank you for all that you do!


Happy Gardening!
