Currently the Great Falls Garden Club maintains two garden sites at the Great Falls Library and one garden, The Blue Star Memorial Garden, at the Village Center in Great Falls. One garden at the library lines the walkway along the library’s path and the other is the Meadow visible from Georgetown Pike. Beyond their aesthetics, the gardens serve to attract many pollinators when in bloom.
To further the idea of planting gardens for pollinators like birds, bees and butterflies, the Garden Club hopes to encourage the idea of creating these kinds of gardens by offering a $150 Grant to a Great Falls youth between the ages of 9-14 to create their own Pollinator Garden.
All interested individuals can find information about the Grant by visiting the Great Falls Library where there is a display with lots of helpful resources. In addition, the Grant Application and additional information can be found on the Club’s website www.gfgardenclub.org
The Grant Application must be completed by April 15, 2022. All applications should be sent to the following address:
