THE GARDEN CLUB OF MADISON
The Garden Club of Madison, Connecticut, was founded in 1924 with an objective to advance the fine art of gardening, the study of horticulture, landscape design and artistic design. Club members aid in the protection and conservation of natural resources and plan and participate in civic beautification projects. This club cooperates with the State Federation and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
GARDEN CLUB GENERAL MEETINGS
Our monthly meetings will occur on the second Tuesday of the month.
We have a blend of morning 11:30 a.m. meetings and some 6:00 p.m.
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 includes 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.
