1994 was the year that the Bedford Flower and Garden Club began. Today they have over 50 members. It began with a small group of avid garden lovers meeting at the Bedford Library. They still meet in that location.

The club has an annual garden walk. This year it will be on July 13th. It will begin at the library at 9:00. Presentation will be given on Vertical Gardening at 10:30am and Invasive and Native Plants at 1:30pm. Both presentation are by our Monroe County Master Gardeners. These presentation will qualify for educational hours. They also have a “Backyard Boutique” that will feature fairy gardens, decorating items for the home, unique bird baths and hand crafted garden art made by Garden Club members; They also have books and magazines. For more information contact Tour Coordinator Cindy Skaggs at 419-266-0134 or Garden Club President Jessie Green at 734-847-1054.

They meet the first Wednesday of the Month. The next meeting will be September 4th. You may join them as a guest if you are interested in becoming a member. The meetings are a combination of social time and education. They also have guest speakers who lecture on various garden topics.
