Southeast Garden Clubs Announce Garden Club Tour

Long ago, a group of women gathered down by the Snake River to share a passion for gardening, and unbeknownst to them at the time, this social gathering would blossom into an educational non-profit organization and eventually be renamed the Idaho Falls Garden Club.

Over the years, the Idaho Falls Garden Club has sought to educate and create friendships over common interests. “The club is for people who want to learn a bit more about gardening and gardens,” President Linda Carter Beck of the Idaho Falls Garden Club said.

This year marks a significant milestone as the Idaho Falls Garden Club partners with the Roberts Town & Country Garden Club for a Garden Club Tour on July 20th. Linda describes the tour as an opportunity for the community to take a look at the varieties of gardening a person can do from a small front yard to a cul-de-sac.

Whether you’re a beginner or master gardener, or just love to see plants and flowers in bloom, everyone in the community is invited to come. “We encourage everyone, from small families to individuals who are older, to come,” Linda said.

We’ll be visiting Happyville Community Farm, where they teach young kids how to grow vegetables,” Linda said. “And to those who are older and want to garden, the tour will show you how you can do it, even if you might have some mobility issues.”

Beginning at 9 a.m., the tour will visit nine locations and end at 3 p.m. Half of the proceeds will be donated to Happyville Community Farm and the other half to the Southeast garden clubs.

There's some opportunity for everyone.”
