Lovely Garden Setting

Lovely Garden

AAUW Garden Group is composed of persons who share a common love of gardening.  Some have elaborate gardens while others may only have limited plantings or even just potted plants or natives.

Gardening challenge

Garden Challenge: dried arrangements

Our group began in 2000 and some of the original members still participate. We share our woes, problems, and suggestions for gardening success as well as we often have programs on topics of interest to the group such as irrigation, roses, iris, photographing flowers, etc.

We recently had a program on “basic tips for proper gardening body mechanics” or how to save your back! Trips to the arboretum in Flagstaff, the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens and the annual Flower & Art Show at the Phoenix Art museum are always well attended.

We meet monthly at different member’s homes at 1:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday EXCEPT no meeting in November and a potluck takes place early in the month of December. May or June usually finds us again partying with a potluck at a member’s home, at which time we also invite member’s significant others. We welcome all interested AAUW members.  Please contact Linda Schmitt for additional information.
