The Seabrook Island Garden Club will hold its first meeting of the 2018-19 season on Sept. 14 at the Seabrook Island Lake House. The meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. and will consist of brunch and a brief business agenda. We enthusiastically look forward to greeting our membership, sharing our summer adventures and launching our program for the year ahead.
Not a member yet? Don’t let the name fool you! If you think you don’t have a green thumb or even basic garden skills the Seabrook Island Garden Club is actually the place for you. The Garden Club is a great place to meet your neighbors, learn about our natural environment, support your community and mostly a delightful opportunity to make and build friendships.
The monthly speakers also bring us a treasure trove of information.
There is a great line up this year that you will not want to miss. Come hear our expert guest speakers on topics such as interior design, wild birds, antiques, estate landscaping planning, and container gardening.
Our big event of the year is the Holiday Open House. All Seabrook Island residents are invited, all the trimmings are rolled out as we toast the opening of the holiday season.
Traditionally we close the season with a festive luncheon at the Seabrook Island Club.
The annual dues are only $25. Meaningful things happen with our collected dues. Through the years we continue to support our community by making a meaningful contribution to a dedicated scholarship fund in horticulture for a deserving student at Trident University.
Our meetings each month include refreshments at 9:30 a.m., a short business meeting at 10 a.m. and our main event speaker at 10:15 a.m. Meetings usually conclude between 11 and 11:30 a.m. and take place on the second Friday of each month at the Lake House.
