The Garden Club of Millsboro is a nonprofit organization, independent of other gardening organizations, dedicated to the enrichment of fellow gardeners and service to our community.  Our members enjoy a shared interest in gardening.  Our members have a desire to learn more about horticulture in a wide range of gardening interests, such as, landscape design, plant care, container gardening, kitchen gardening, and house plants.  The educational aspects of our activities, events, field trips, meetings, programs and projects are directed toward educating gardeners and the general public about a variety of topics, such as, landscape/streetscape design and maintenance, horticulture of plant care, insects, pests, and weed control.   Our members enjoy the sheer pleasure of gardening—both the labor and fruits of their labor.  Our members are novices and experienced gardeners interested in enhancing the beauty of their own gardens, as well as, volunteering to improve the gardens in and around the public areas of Millsboro, Delaware.

HISTORY The Garden Club of Millsboro was founded by Denise Emery, Carol Jarboe, Marjorie Lewis, Emily Peterson, Diane Potter and Donna Rogers.  The first meeting was held on May 1, 2007.  The first project was to meet with the town representatives and discuss the possibility of our group taking on the task of setting out planters around town.  Many of the group donated plants which were installed in the town’s used planters.  St Mark’s Church generously let the group fill the planters at their facility.  Then, the planters were placed around Main Street and Washington Street in Millsboro.  The project was so successful that we expanded the streetscape to include new and more planters around town and the Route 24 bridge, design and install plant material at the band stand, island, and the flag pole in Cupola Park, and design and install plant material around the “Welcome to Millsboro” town sign.  Garden Club of Millsboro, PO Box 1111, Millsboro, DE  19966 Email:  millsborogardenclub@gmail.com      Webmaster:  Doug Cortelyou
