About Us - Kingwood Garden Club.

The Kingwood Garden Club was formed in 1973. The stated object of the club is ... to stimulate interest in floral design and horticulture; to cultivate a broader knowledge of gardens and gardening; to aid in the protection of native trees, plants, and wildlife; and to encourage civic interest in and appreciation for the work and growth of garden club. Dues are $50 annually, payable at the March meeting. The general meeting is held the first Tuesday of the month from September through May. Two of these meetings, a pilgrimage, and the installation luncheon, are off-site. The meeting place is the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church located at 2929 Woodland Hills Dr., Kingwood, Texas.

General meeting programs are coordinated with the themes of the National, Regional, District, Federation, and Kingwood Garden Club's President and Directors. A half-hour social period with refreshments precedes the general meeting. Following the main program, horticulture and/or design tips are offered. Plants are brought to each meeting for exchange and/or show.

Scholarships go to graduates of Kingwood High and Kingwood Park.  Students must be at the “junior” level or above with declared majors in horticulture or related fields of study. KGC members may apply for “in-house” scholarships for accredited classes they take in horticulture, landscape design, floral design or other related areas of study.

At Kingwood College, it would be available in their second year. Yearly scholarships have been given since 1986.

The diversity of projects and activities within the Club is extensive. There are numerous Standing Committees. Several of these groups invite members to join and contribute. Some of these groups are: Arbor Day /Conservation, Community Share-a-Plant, Community Service, Federation, Flower Design Study, Horticulture, Horticulture Study Group, Mercer Arboretum, Special Projects and Youth Gardening. In addition there are several new projects and many continuing activities: Kingwood Library beautification Memorial for 9/11, Pilgrimage, a Gardening Symposium, a retrospective of past projects, and a Spring Garden Tour.

The yearbook is the members' reference book and is compiled annually by the third Vice President. It is available to members beginning in September. Published addresses and phone numbers are for Garden Club use only.

The membership newsletter arrives approximately one week before the general meeting. It provides information on all activities and meetings for the upcoming month.

The National Council of State Garden Clubs Inc.'s Handbook for Flower Shows is used as the guideline for all flower shows. This publication is in our library cabinet where our meetings are held. Accredited judges evaluate all standard flower shows. Since 1982, the Garden Club has held a flower show almost every 3 years.

Kingwood Garden Club maintains a library for the exclusive use of the members. Books cover a wide range of gardening and floral design topics most with full color pictures and information pertinent to our growing region.
