Milton Garden Club
The MGC is a working garden club with members planting, weeding and watering the gardens and planters throughout the town of Milton and raising money to support these efforts. The membership is comprised of longtime residents and newcomers with a wide variety of interests and expertise from beginning gardeners to Master Gardeners. The club’s motto “Weed ‘n Feed” came about because the monthly meetings are always preceded by a pot luck supper.
Club members raise funds to purchase plants and gardening materials for the gardens and planters, in addition to caring for them. The club’s participation in the Milton Holly Festival held each year on the second Saturday of December is the largest fundraiser. Members of the club make Williamsburg style magnolia and boxwood wreaths and evergreen wreaths and arrangements in the days leading up to the Holly Festival with fresh greens donated by members and friends. Throughout the year, the club participates in several other fundraising activities including the Milton Farmer’s Market, the Horseshoe Crab Festival, Lavender Festival, and various raffles. The funds raised provide for the donation of annual scholarships given to students pursuing further education in areas aligned with the garden club mission. It is a registered nonprofit corporation in the State of Delaware a 501(c)3 status with the IRS.
