Rewarding Area Gardeners

The Garden Awards program for 2020 took an unexpected Vacation to deal with Covid. Hopefully, 2021 returns with increased togetherness being possible.

These gardens inspired us for 2019. Come visit or join our club and be inspired.

Members of the Pineridge Garden Club in Cottage Grove were inspired by the efforts our local gardeners. The Club recognized three area gardens on July 17th for their “efforts to beautify the community.”

Each received a Yard Award sign to display in their gardens/yards. Determining garden awards is the highlight of the club’s year according to organizers. Members enjoy touring the yards and collecting ideas for their own gardens. Visit our Garden Awards page here to view videos of the lovely gardens:  Garden Award Winners
