Garden Club of York’s Youth Gardening
Our focus is to Inspire Kids…One Seed at a Time, bringing the joy and knowledge of gardening to the younger members of the York community. We are developing and leading workshops for Girl Scouts, bringing fun and educational programs to kids at summer camp, and providing Kid’s Gardening Kits to Martin Library for kids and parents to take home and explore gardening with their families. In the near future we are looking forward to working alongside young gardeners as we plan and plant a garden right here in our community!
We invite you to check out fun projects and activities at our Young Gardener’s Corner on our website. Look there for events to attend and things to learn!

National Garden Club Poetry Contest
Sing with the Songbirds- Exploring the Glory of Nature
Congratulations to Grace DeBoldt of Jacobus. She is the winner of the Poetry Contest at our local club level! Her entry will go on to be judged at the Regional Garden Club level.
Here is her poem…
Feathers and Branches
F-lapping, flying and fluttering around a tree.
I-n and out of the leaves.
N-icely swerving among the branches.
C-hasing each other silently.
H-ave you ever seen a bird friendlier than the finch?
