The Antioch Garden Club is a vital part of the Antioch Community. The members are exhibiting both civic concern and active involvement. We are committed making our village a nice place to visit and live in. We hold education programs throughout the year for our members. We organize the annual Plant Sale and Garden Walk events to raise fund for supporting civic projects, such as making donations to the Open Arms Pantry; Penny Pines Reforestation; Antioch Community Garden; Antioch Public Library; Arbor Day trees and shrubs purchases and plantings; Youth Horticulture Education program; Memorial services at the Blue Star Marker & Gardens; Beautification and maintain the Village Gardens etc. We are very proud of what we are doing and will continue to make the contributions to our community.
Antioch Garden Club participated in the Earth Day Fair sponsored by Antioch Community High School. More than hundred students came through and stopped at our table to pick up “Milkweed for Monarch” seed packets that were given out along with a poster on Loons. We also introduced our plant sale event as well as native plants. AGC member Joanne D., Cindy C. , Carolyn Y. and Joyce K took part in this informational and educational event.
Our member Nancy Z. along with Karen C. gave a presentation to the Antioch Women's Club on Wednesday, February 8th on our garden club and our involvement in our community. Chong L. was there for technical support and Barb G. for moral support. Nancy & Karen did a wonderful job representing our club. Many were not aware of that the numerous things our club does for the community. Also in attendance were several other members of our garden club who are also members of Antioch Woman's Club. Great job Nancy & Karen! It made us proud to see not only nice presentation, but how much our club continues to "cultivate a nicer community".
