NHGC meetings have been open to the public and held from February through November
We will not be holding our monthly meetings this Fall. As of August 12th, the Mayor announced the Macedonia City Center is not renting out the community room at least until the end of the year. If that changes, we will discuss if we could gather safely!
Ourguest speaker for March was to be Sandy Barbic from the Summit County Soil and Water Conservation District. She was going to discuss soil and water quality using native plants. Our recent meeting was February 19thand our speaker was Janice Loreta, an herbalist/healer who discussed flu season tips and how to fend off illness naturally. Our April speaker was to be Lee Paulson, Summit County Master Gardener, discussing everything you wanted to know (and maybe not know!) about annuals – timing is good as we prepare to color our decks and gardens with lots of them. Our September speaker was to be about birds and our October speaker all about the Summit County Metro Parks.
When our next meeting is announced we hope to see you at the Macedonia City Center, lower level. Community Room, City Hall.
ADDITIONAL MEETING INFORMATION is ANNOUNCED IN THE LINK BELOW
There are plenty of plants that can add pizzazz to your yard from that Indian summer through winter's first chill. You’ll love the purple berry-covered beautyberry, bright sunflower lookalikes heliopsis, and butterfly-attracting heleniums.
Looking for stems that feel more seasonally appropriate? Opt for the steely silver dusty miller, or plant the white sweet autumn clematis in your garden for a fresh new flower whose sweet vanilla scent smells just as good as it looks.
You can also step up your farm-to-table game, thanks to durable herbs like parsley and fresh rosemary.
NHGC Awards and Donations
Nordonia Hills Garden Club is organised and operated exclusively for charitable purposes.
We annually award a scholarship to a Nordonia Hills high school senior. As well as, having an annual beautification award to a local business to recognise their landscaping. This year we will have involvement with the Blue Star Memorial installation for the city of Nordonia Hills.
At our monthly meetings, members donate to The Emergency Assistance Center. It is a food pantry in Northfield, Ohio which serves 12 surrounding communities. They provide food, clothing, personal hygiene items, and seasonal support to our Northeast Ohio neighbors in need on a monthly basis. They are a network partner of the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank.
The Garden Club was recognizedby the Newsleader in the latest article about Longwood Manor. The article mentions the Garden Club purchased plants and had many plants donated to help revitalize the exterior Gardens of Longwood Manor.
Recently, our club received a first place award from the Garden Club of Ohio for our website. The website award application will now be automatically submitted to the National Garden Club!
