City of Brownsboro Village

Garden Club

“When you find something you love, be sure to share it!”

The Brownsboro Village Garden Club is a group of residents who share a love of nature and gardening. The objective of the Brownsboro Village Gardening Club is to restore, improve and protect the quality of the environment in Brownsboro Village thru education and action in conservation and civic improvement.

There are so many reasons to join:

  • To learn something new
  • To benefit the community
  • To participate in club events
  • To soothe your soul
  • To stay active
  • To unite people of all ages

Membership is open to all residents of Brownsboro Village.

Commissioner Maryellen Howley and Shannon Miller are the organizers as of July 2023.

Our primary focus is on education.  Based on the concepts highlighted in the book, “Nature’s Best Hope” by Douglas Tallamy, we believe that we can help save the world in our own yards!

Our purpose is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, learning from one another and from experts we will invite to speak. Practical hands on activities, swapping plants and cuttings will enhance our pollinator gardens – feeding our butterflies, bees and birds.
