Flower Mound has a new club to cull the ranks of residents with green thumbs, or those who hope to grow one.
The Flower Mound Garden Club was organized in July, and it has 11 members. The group has been founded to help dig up the gardening needs of all residents, whether they live in a home, condo, townhouse or apartment.
Each month the club will beet and learn a practical approach to improving the local environment. Everyone is welcome to attend.
On September 15, the gardening group will hold its first official meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridlewood Activity Center. Linda Krimm, district II director for Texas Garden Clubs, will be there to welcome the new group and share some opportunities to become involved.
Another speaker will be there to show how to use outside plants to form inside accents.
And at 7 p.m. on October 6 at the Flower Mound Public Library, Brickman Landscaping LLC will share how to prepare yards for winter.
The FMGC is awaiting full accreditation from the Texas Garden Clubs and the National Garden Clubs. The group hopes to provide smaller meetings for those who have specific interests like teaching students about gardening, helping seniors garden and photographing nature.
Meetings will be held monthly at 6:30 p.m.
