Plant America…Grow Our Legacy
The objectives of the Avon-on-the-lake Garden Club shall be to promote the interests and knowledge of members and the community in home gardening and floral design, and to encourage and participate in civic planting and conservation.
As a 501c# organization that performs educational and garden club related activities, the Avon-on-the-Lake Garden Club’s objectives promote interests and knowledge of members and the community in home gardening and floral design, as well as to encourage and participate in civic planting and conversation.
The Avon-on-the-Lake Garden Club is an affiliate member of the Garden Clubs of Ohio, National Garden Club, and Holden Forests and Gardens. The club originated in 1930. Part of its civic work includes designing, procuring, and maintaining nine civic gardens within Avon Lake. Three of these gardens are historic gardens. The Club also includes events that educate the public about conservation, water management, pollinators, native plants, soil development and composting. The Garden Club protects rare native plants and has won Ohio and national awards for its efforts. Our organization interacts with Heritage Avon Lake (HAL), the Avon Lake Public Library (ALPL), the Avon Lake Public Schools, and the City of Avon Lake to educate the community about gardening, conservation, and other environmental concerns. It was named the Garden Club of the Year in 2012 and 2016 by the Garden Club of Ohio.
