If you don’t know about Lexington Council Garden Clubs already, you should! These folks are doing good work out in the community. Their mission is “To provide education, resources, and networking opportunities for its members and promote the love of gardening, floral design, civic, and environmental responsibility”. Every year, to highlight the great gardening folks are doing around town, they sponsor a contest called the Lexington in Bloom contest.
According to LCGC, “The Lexington in Bloom Contest recognizes the most outstanding gardens in Fayette County visible from the street. The goal of the contest is to instill a spirit of community, to increase civic pride, and to improve the visual appeal of the area through the imaginative use of flowers, plants and trees. Winners are selected in five categories:
- Residence, front yard, amateur gardener
- Residence, front yard, professionally landscaped
- Business, large garden
- Business, small garden
- Miscellaneous (apartments, non-profit entities’ gardens, neighborhood association entrances, container gardens, balcony gardens, etc.)”
Seedleaf is honored to have been given special recognition in the miscellaneous category, 2012, for both our London Ferrell and out Withrow community gardens!
Of course, these wonderful gardens rely on the dedication of our volunteers. Thus, today, we want to thank the Lexington Council Garden Clubs for recognizing Seedleaf’s work, and in turn, thank you, our volunteers, for making it all possible.
Additionally, a special thanks goes out to Aaron German, whose hard work and outstanding personality consistently serve as examples to the volunteers at our Withrow garden, where Aaron has the helm.Hi, Aaron!
Anyone who has worked with Aaron knows how much he cares about Withrow, and how infectious his great attitude can be. He sets the bar high, and we are proud of him! It is an honor for Seedleaf to be recognized for his work and for your work–you, our fantastic volunteers, our team, our community, our roots.
Thanks to the Lexington Council Garden Clubs, and thanks to anyone who has cared for a Seedleaf garden!
