Spring is here and that means the Groveport Garden Club is blooming with activity.

The Groveport Garden Club will host its annual plant auction on May 14 from 6-8:30 p.m. at Groveport Zion Lutheran Church, 6014 Groveport Road, Groveport. Refreshments and the auction preview will be available starting at 6 p.m. and bidding begins at 6:30 p.m. All auction proceeds support the Groveport Garden Club.

The Groveport Garden Tour of community gardens will be June 23 from noon to 5 p.m. (rain or shine). Tour tickets are free.

“Last year the tour featured only garden club member gardens,” said Lacy Cooper, president of the Groveport Garden Club. “However, the tour is not for members only. Some wonderful gardens in Groveport belong to residents who aren’t members of the garden club and we’d love to include them as part of the tour, too.”

Gardeners can email groveportgardenclub@gmail.com for additional details on participating as a tour stop or for information on how to get tickets. Tour tickets will also be available for in-person pick-up at Groveport Town Hall, 648 Main St.; as well as the Groveport Recreation Center and the Groveport Senior Center, 7370 Groveport Road, beginning June 11.

The Groveport Garden Club also participates in a few gardening activities around the city.

“We will be maintaining the herb garden at the Nature Center (Groveport Log House) at Heritage Park,” said Cooper. “The herb garden will feature both culinary and medicinal herbs commonly grown and used in the Ohio River Valley in the early 1800s and when the house was built. We’ve also rented a plot at the Groveport Community Garden where we will grow some produce to donate to the Groveport Food Pantry.”

The garden club is always looking for active gardeners to help it grow.

For meeting and activity information contact groveportgardenclub@gmail.com or find them on Facebook.

The Groveport Garden Club has been helping to present nature’s beauty to the community for more than 60 years. The club was formed on July 13, 1961 by a group of friends and neighbors.

The club promotes interest and knowledge in horticulture, gardening, garden therapy, and floral arts through programs that foster creativity and personal growth, encouraging home, community and statewide beautification work.

The Groveport Garden Club has a rich history in sharing the joy of plants with the community.
