2017 Open Gate Garden Club
Tour is July 9th
The 2017 Garden Tour will feature unique and interesting gardens in Fenton area.
Welcome to the Home Page for the Open Gate Garden Club of Michigan. We are delighted that your interest in gardening has brought you to our garden gate.
The club’s objective is “To encourage interest in all phases of home gardening, to promote community projects and environmental responsibility, and to inspire a love of nature and beauty.”
Founded in 1992, The Open Gate Garden Club of Michigan has 130 members, both men and women.
They reside in the communities of Byron, Burton, Chelsea, Fenton, Flint, Gaines, Grand Blanc, Holly, Linden, and Swartz Creek.
Diversity in membership includes advanced master gardeners, master gardeners and apprentices, and home gardeners. New members are accepted prior to our membership year, which begins in September and runs through August. Visitors are welcome at all meetings.
Meetings are held monthly during the membership year at St. John’s Activity Center in Fenton. Guest speaker topics include garden preparation, composting practices, conifers, annual/perennial gardens, specialty gardens, pruning - if it's in the garden, we'll be talking about it. Our hallmark event is the annual club-sponsored garden tour that occurs the 2nd Sunday in July.
The Open Gate Garden Club is a service club in every sense of the word. Each year the Club awards funds to member-nominated projects or organizations that meet the objectives
