Gardeners of Jackson (formerly Men’s Garden Club)


Gardeners of Jackson (formerly Men's Garden Club)

Full Description


From its earliest days, The Garden Club of Jackson has demonstrated a strong commitment to horticulture, flower arranging, conservation and civic improvement. Mary Sydney Green, a member of the Little Garden Club of Rye, New York, moved back to her hometown of Jackson in 1988, cognizant of the impact that garden clubs can have on their communities. She founded the Garden Club of Jackson in 1991, with eleven members interested in gardening, artistic floral expression, civic enhancement and learning. Well aware of the mission and high standards of The Garden Club of America, Mary Sydney made sure that the Jackson club operated in line with the same objectives.

The first meeting of The Garden Club of Jackson was held in 1991 in Mary Sydney Green’s home, with mentor Eleanor Green of Laurel in attendance. During the year the club traveled to the Crosby Arboretum in Picayune, Mississippi, for a tour conducted by Lynn Crosby Gammill,. This trip set in motion the club’s commitment to conservation of natural areas and resources and its interest in the study and exploration of horticulture.

The club held an in-club flower show in 1993, and Denny Bellingrath of Little Rock, Arkansas, presented a club program on horticulture during that year. She addressed club members about the importance of horticulture, encouraging members to take small steps in their horticultural efforts, but by all means to get started learning about this fascinating topic. Thus began the club’s emphasis on propagation and studying individual gardens.
