Community Projects

Roswell Square

national garden weekIn 1951, the Roswell Garden Club voted to beautify the Roswell Square, which serves as the center for many civic and cultural events for Roswell’s citizens and visitors.  Throughout the years, RGC members have planted trees and shrubbery at the square’s six entrances as well as holly trees encircling the center fountain and concert bandstand.  The club was instrumental in the installation of a sprinkler system for the square and the purchase of two wrought iron benches to enhance the pedestrian walkways.

Roswell Area Park

This park, located on Woodstock Road, was hit with a natural catastrophe, where approximately 350 trees were destroyed. The RGC donated $450 to cover the cost of replacing a tree.

Other Projects

The Club has sent toys for the troops to hand out to local children to build good will, has collected gatorade and power bars for the fire fighters in South Georgia, and participates locally in National Garden Week and Arbor Day each year.

Live garden baskets were given to city buildings for National Garden Week.
