To be a source of gardening
and community service to
the Hilliard Ohio area.
Our club has been active for over 25 years with around 40 members, women as well as men, of varying ages and gardening interests.
The Hilliard Community / Senior Center is the home for most of our meetings which are held on the third Tuesday of each month from 7 to 9pm. You don’t need to be a member to attend a meeting. Visit us on Facebook at Hilliard Area Garden Club to learn about upcoming activities or send an email to HilliardAreaGardenClub@yahoo.com.
To help increase butterfly numbers, our club established a Certified Monarch Way Station with native plants to support their life cycle.
Other outreach projects have included our annual Plant Sale and support for the Columbus Zoo’s “Seeds of Friendship” program in which we provide vegetable and flower seeds to the people of Rwanda. Our annual Spring event “A Garden Affair” features a well-known speaker on a variety of gardening topics and is very popular with Hilliard and the surrounding communities.
From Asters to Zucchini, every member has their own unique gardening style. Some grow amazing tropicals, while others have a passion for perennials that attract butterflies and other pollinators.
Summer meetings take us outdoors to tour a club member’s home garden. Other times we’ll take an excursion to a local place of interest.
Past Excursions include:
> Chadwick Arboretum
> Scioto Gardens “Gardening & Arts Festival”
> Butterfly Ridge Conservation Center
> Governor’s Residence & Heritage Gardens
> Amity Abloom
> and many more
