The Cayman Garden Club is once again using its talents and resources to create beautiful gardens in public spaces around Cayman.
With more than 60 active members, the Garden Club promotes interest in gardening and all things related to the natural beauty of the Cayman Islands, along with fostering friendships while undertaking various projects.
Under the supervision of Robert Bennett, the Garden Club’s horticultural specialist, club members were joined by several Leo Club members to complete the second phase of its project beautifying the entrance of the University College of the Cayman Islands.
Native bull thatch, silver thatch, bullrush, rosemary, desert rose, plumbago and periwinkle flowers were put in to give the area a more pleasing look for people attending the university.
The club has undertaken similar gardening projects around the island, including at the Pines Retirement Home, the Frances Bodden Girls Home, the Tourism Attraction Board headquarters, the Bonaventure Boys Home, the governor’s residence and the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park.
The Garden Club is sponsoring a family day at the Botanic Park on Jan. 24 with the aim of getting the entire family out to the Botanic Park for a day of relaxation and learning. Activities for the day will include craft-making demonstrations, story telling, orchid potting, a plant sale, a magic show, park tours and performances by Cayman International School and North Side Primary.
