East Shore Garden Club
The East Shore Garden Club (ESGC) of Euclid will hold their eighth annual non-standard flower show and plant sale Sep. 14 at the Euclid Public Library. The hours of the show are from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
This year the ESGC will adopt-a-spot at the new children’s Playground Express behind the Euclid police station. Two gardens will be created after the fencing is placed around the playground.
ESGC actively participates in projects at the Cleveland Botanical Garden (CBG). We create a scarecrow each year to be placed in the Hershey Children’s Garden. The scarecrows, created by garden clubs affiliated with CBG, remain in the garden throughout the month of October. At that point we can reclaim our scarecrows and place them in our own gardens. We have also created pedestal displays for CBG’s lobby.
We also take part in the East 185th Street Alive event and the East 200th Street Stroll. We sell plants to help raise funds for various activities we sponsor or are sponsored by CBG, GCO or the National Garden Club.
The ESGC was established in 1938 and is a member of Garden Club of Ohio, Inc (GCO). We meet every second Tuesday of each month from September through May. Most of our meetings take place at the Euclid Public Library unless we are on a field trip. Our programs generally start at 11am. Guests are always welcome.
