We are one of the oldest garden clubs in the country. Originally organized in June of 1930 as the “Steel City Gardeners” and renamed in the 1940s as the “Men’s Garden Club of Youngstown. In 2021 the club’s name was changed to the “Gardeners of Greater Youngstown”, reflecting the addition of women to the club.
The purpose of The Gardeners of Greater Youngstown is to create a better understanding of gardening and to encourage and promote the beautification of our community. In order to meet this endeavor, several civic projects are completed each year.
Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the D. D. Davis Center at Fellows Riverside Garden. Meetings are open to the public. Members receive a monthly newsletter, “The Germinator,” which has timely gardening hints, club news and other local and regional horticultural events. Members also become members of The Gardeners of America.
Our interests are as varied as yours. Whether your interest run from azaleas to zinnias, or asparagus to zucchinis you will definitely find some “common ground.”
Each year The Gardeners of Greater Youngstown sponsors a horticultural show at the Davis Education and Visitors Center of Riverside Garden in Mill Creek Metro Park, which is open to the public.Anyone is welcome to participate including youth and adults.Sections included in the show are:
·Vegetables, Ornamentals, Fruits, Annuals, Perennials, Biennials
