Our April membership meeting is devoted to Dirt Diggers, an all-out effort to dig and divide proven perennials from members' gardens which we sell at this event. In 2011, FCGC started Gardenfest with Boyd Community Center, now the Lauri Ann West Community Center. We teamed up with other garden clubs and organizations which promote green gardening practices. What began as a venue to sell our plants and share garden knowledge has morphed into a popular daylong festival with children's activities, an artists' market, food, workshops and so much more. All profits from our plant sale are donated.
We have been a part of this center and it’s Beulah Frey Park for many, many years. We helped in maintaining the Hedgerow area, we supported the prior building (Boyd Community Center) and we helped to fund the building of this new center. Currently we are supporting gardening and environmental education programs.
