Chesapeake Bay Garden Club
Celebrating 65 Years in Reedville, Virginia
Club History: Chesapeake Bay Garden Club was organized in 1953 by Addie Smith Roberts, who was the club's first president and was active in local, district, state and National Garden Clubs. Because of Addie's love for flowers and gardening, she left a wonderful legacy of beauty and service to our club, the Piedmont District, her church and community and the many people who crossed her path.

Chesapeake Bay Garden Club meets the 4th Tuesday of each month, September thru June, at Festival Halle in Reedville, Virginia. (No regular meetings in November and December, when we make trees and wreaths for our annual fund-raiser.) We begin each meeting with a light lunch at 12:00 noon (feel free to come early), followed by our meeting and the program. Horticulture specimens and floral designs are exhibited and judged at each meeting.
In addition to monthly meetings, there are projects,educational programs and small groups that provide opportunities for involvement in a variety of interests. There's something for everyone! We invite you to join us or contact us [email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Guests are invited to attend and new members are always welcome.
Club Library Resources to Promote Garden Education
Our club has a large selection of books covering horticulture topics, gardening, floral design, conservation and more. Books are available for check-out at each club meeting and can be returned the following meeting. Our librarian, Bobby Brogden, will be glad to assist you in looking for a specific book or topic!
Plant America is the phrase used by the National Garden Clubs, Inc., to describe its emphasis for the next two years. Piggy-backing on this objective let’s strive to "Plant the Northern Neck of Virginia" – re-evaluating our practices and choices in our private gardens and the public gardens which we tend, to safeguard their quality and ensure their sustainability.
