THE GARDEN CLUB OF MADISON
Due to this transitional period related to Covid-19, general club meetings and some programs are suspended until further notice. As always, we will be looking for new ways to meet, socialize, learn, and help our community beautify the gardens and town we hold so dear.
GARDEN CLUB GENERAL MEETINGS
Our monthly meetings take place on the second Tuesday of the month.
We have a blend of 11:30 a.m. meetings and 6:00 p.m. meetings.
Our meeting place is the First Congregational Church Hall, Meetinghouse Lane, on the Madison Green.
Monthly programs educate club members in gardening, horticulture, floral design, landscape design and environmental issues.
Horticulture is the art and science of growing flowers, ornamental plants, fruits and vegetables.
Design projects include both traditional and creative design of fresh or dried plant material, organized according to the principles and elements of design. The eight visual characteristics of all components contributing to floral art are Line, Form, Color, Texture, Pattern, Size, Space and Light. The principles of design (basic art standards by which all visual art is judged) are Balance, Contrast, Dominance, Proportions, Scale and Rhythm.
