MSHS Garden Club of the Year Award - 2014

Rochester Garden and Flower Club

Founded in 1929, the Rochester Garden and Flower Club is a vibrant group with 156 members. Its mission is to promote education in the culture, propagation and care of flowers, vegetables and trees, and to promote interest in gardens, flowers, and the beautification of the Rochester area.

Through its annual plant sale, club members fund two scholarships each year to Rochester Community and Technical College. The club’s annual garden tour is open to the public, complete with demonstrations and a free ice cream social.

Every year, the club participants in the Olmstead County Fair and helps the public create flower arrangements. Club members designed the Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial in Rochester, and they plant and maintain gardens there and at the Rochester Area Family YMCA.

The club supports MSHS through its involvement in the work of the society’s First District, organizing meetings, volunteering at MSHS events, serving on the MSHS Board of Directors and supporting MSHS membership.
