Land o' Lakes garden club has been busy

submitted by Lynn McEvoy

This spring has been a very productive time for the club with several projects on the go. Club members have given many hours to the planning and preparation that has gone into our efforts to beautify our community.

Cloyne Pioneer Cemetery - Early May saw garden club members weeding and clearing the site for future landscaping. Plans are to make pathways through the area and plant with hardy, drought resistant ground covers and perennials.

Addington Highlands Business Breakfast - Our club made a presentation of a plan to install banners on utility poles and have planter boxes placed at businesses throughout the LOL area.


Pine Meadow Nursing Home - Two days were spent at the nursing home, one to remove deteriorated raised beds and to construct new planting beds, and a second to plant perennials and annuals in beds and pots. Decorative structures such as an obelisk and a twig trellis were included and brightly-coloured birdhouses are to be installed.

Flinton Library Garden club members, 1st Cloyne Brownies and Guides and their moms and the Flinton Library’s librarian renovated the front yard garden and planted a variety of perennials and shrubs.

These projects are undertaken for the enjoyment of residents and visitors and to make the community more pleasant to be in.

The Land o’ Lakes Garden Club has projects planned for further beautifying the area and is always looking for new members who are interested in sharing their gardening experiences. We meet September through June on the second Thursday of the month in Cloyne. Our monthly meetings are planned with learning and fun in mind. We have knowledgeable guest speakers and have trips to garden centres as well as attractions such as the Lanark Orchid Festival in June. For more information, you can contact Lynn at 613-336-0771
