Do you love to play in the dirt and enjoy the results as your garden grows? Perhaps you are new to the island and the Georgia coast and are looking for help with native plants, then The Landings Garden Club is waiting for you!
Our programs and events provide insight into gardening in the coastal Georgia climate as well as many other interesting topics relating to our beautiful island and region. Join us, our enthusiastic members are full of tips and tricks on what and how to garden in our unique environment. Our members organize and volunteer many award winning local and community gardening projects for Beautification, Education and Conservation.
What Does the Garden Club Do? We participate in community service projects, learn about all phases of gardening, including horticulture, flower arranging, and preservation of our environment of plants, wildlife and our coastal marshes.
The focus of our work is aligned with the objectives and goals of the State organization and the National Council. Our work is supported financially by our dues and the members making and selling Christmas bows and raffling monthly floral arrangements.
The Landings Garden Club has an executive committee of six officers and eighteen standing committees. We also publish a monthly newsletter of club activities, announcements and interesting area events.
What is Expected of a Member?
Members should attend meetings
You should be willing to participate on a committee of your choice and to take on a Chairmanship if called upon by the President.
If the Nominating Committee calls on you to serve as an Officer, it is hoped you will carefully consider the office and accept. The backbone of the Club is a good slate of officers. To be selected as an officer is a privilege – not a chore.

Board meetings are 9:00 AM, followed by refreshments at 9:30 and the general meeting at 10:00, after which a program is presented. Our monthly speakers address a wide range of topics from floral arrangement to preservation of our marshes, birds and wildlife.
