Bloom Through Membership

“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.”

– Gertrude Jekyll

Quantico Spouses’ Garden Club official start of the year begins in September and runs through May. For several years, our meetings were held on the 4th Wednesday of every month from 10 am until noon. This year we need to shift those days around. Instead of the 4th Wednesday, we will be meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month (with exceptions in September and November which will be on a Friday.) Meeting time will remain 10 am until noon. We made this change in order to secure the Classroom Annex at the Marine Corps Memorial Chapel which has a large space for presentations, special speakers and workshops. It also has a kitchen which we can use to serve light refreshments to our club members and guests.
