 The Westerville Garden Club's aim is to develop the knowledge and the love of home gardening, to promote the conservation of natural resources, to support the laws, rules and regulations that promote environmental and ecological standards and to stimulate community and civic beautification.

August 14: This month’s meeting topic is “Flowers Favored by Bees, Butterflies & Hummingbirds.” Megan Fleischer, Horticulturist at Inniswood Metro Gardens, will present the program. Her program will feature flowers that bees favor, flower gardens that butterflies are attracted to and flowers that hummingbirds are drawn to. The three “B’s” are nature’s pollinators.

They will be joined by other special guests, Tisa Watts, Columbus Garden Coach, and Agi Risko, OSU Lecturer.
