What is a Standard Flower Show?
A “Standard Flower Show” is the official title of a flower show that conforms to standards established by National Garden Clubs, Inc. (NGC). The purposes of a Standard Flower Show are to educate club members and the viewing public, to stimulate interest in horticulture and floral design, to provide an outlet for creative expression, and to promote the love of gardening.
The Flower Show Theme
“School Life Circa 1950” will feature floral designs, horticultural specimens, and youth exhibits. Example exhibits will represent such topics as “Science Lab”, “Reading, Writing, Arithmetic”, and “Teacher Appreciation”. Judging of exhibits will be based on NGC standards.
Flower Show Exhibits:
Two educational exhibits will be on display… One showcasing the club’s May Day Basket project and the other promoting BayWise gardening practices to protect the Chesapeake Bay.
Directions: From Rts. 3 and 424, turn onto Rt. 424 (Davidsonville Rd.). Make a left at the third light onto Riedel Road. The library is on the right past the Crofton Convalescent Center.
“To promote and preserve the beauty of our community”
CROFTON VILLAGE GARDEN CLUB members demonstrate our commitment to this motto and the objectives of National Garden Clubs, Inc., and Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland, Inc., through our varied programs and projects throughout the year.
OUR CLUB was founded in April 1969 to stimulate member interest in horticulture, conservation, and flower arranging and to encourage by example pride in our homes and our community.
This was updated recently, as follows: The object of the club is to promote and carry out activities that will stimulate member and community interest in horticulture, conservation, and floral design. The club will operate on a non-profit basis and will meet the purposes stated in the Bylaws of the Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland, Inc.
OUR MEMBERS share interesting experiences, develop new skills, and grow lifelong friendships. We enjoy being involved in the community and take pride in our contributions such as our recent role in replacing several diseased cherry trees lining Crofton Parkway, planning, funding and planting the Crofton Rain Garden, our decades-long tradition of holiday decorations for the community, horticulture therapy at Crofton Care and Convalescent Center, and maintaing the Blue Star Memorial Marker and garden at Crofton Libary to honor members of the U.S. Armed Forces.
