Louisa Master Gardeners

Betty Queen Garden Club

Project 2017 - Bulbs, Tomatoes, Okra, Irises, Irish Potatoes and Lentils, and Arranging Flowers Schedule

The Betty Queen Garden Club project was started several years ago by Master Gardeners to provide Senior Center members with garden related educational programs and activities.  The garden project has evolved since moving into the Betty J. Queen Intergenerational Center, a new location for the Louisa County Community Center (formerly the Louisa County Senior Center).  The Center provides more space for programs and a nice outdoor patio with raised planters for garden projects.  The Garden Club members plant outside each spring and watch the planters bloom with showy plantings throughout the summer.  Many of the members are former gardeners and enjoy caring for a garden with weeding, watering and deadheading as an outdoor activity.

Other programs have included composting, worm composting and vegetable gardening, care of indoor plants and gardening to attract hummingbirds, butterflies and beneficial insects.  There are always Questions and Answers about gardening issues.  The Garden Club meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 10:45 am to 11:45 pm, April through September, at the Betty J. Queen Intergenerational Center on Industrial Drive in Louisa.  Seniors 60 and up are welcome to join us and stay for lunch at the Center.
