Silver Spring gardeners can take a break from working in their yard Tuesday and find fellowship with the Green Spring Valley Garden Club (GSVGC) as they celebrate 100 years as a Garden Club of America (GCA).
The GSVGC organization spawned from 20 prominent Maryland women in the Green Spring Valley area who wanted to start a competition and share their gardening skills.
In honor of this special occasion, they are hosting a flower show, called "Her Story – Our Story 1912-2012” at the Maryland Historical Society located at 201 W. Monument Street, Baltimore, MD. The show goes from 2-4 p.m and costs $6 admission.
Event-goers will also be able to attend a lecture with Dean Norton, Mt. Vernon Estate's director of horticulture. Norton will present, “Welcome Home, George Washington!, an informative, and entertaining look at the landscaping world of George Washington.”
Admission for the lecture is $40 and includes an open bar and hors d'oeuvres at a reception.
Tickets to the event are $40. An open bar and hors d’oeuvres will follow the lecture. All proceeds from the event support the museum.
The flower show will also be open to the public on Wednesday, May 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. To make reservations for the reception/lecture at 410-6853750 ext. 363.
