“BRINGING THE OUTDOORS, INDOORS”
Moneta Garden Club (MGC) received a 2015-2016 “Keys to the Future” Youth Project Grant sponsored by the Virginia Federation of Garden
MGC members recently donated their time to teach approximately 150 fifth grade students how to create simple floral designs and to bring the beauty from the outdoors into their homes. The Project design called for MGC members to work with local elementary-age students in three, hands-on, one-day workshops; one at Burnt Chimney Elementary School, where the 5th grade Burnt Chimney, Botanical Bulldogs Junior Garden Club participated on Oct. 28th, and the second at Moneta Elementary School, where the 5th grade Gold Dusters Junior Garden Club participated on Oct. 21st. Nov. 18 MGC worked with Dudley Elementary School’s fifth grade classes to finish up the project. MGC floral designers were on hand to teach the students the art and principles of a basic floral design. Others from the MGC taught the students how to identify plants from other kinds of vegetation and ways to bring the beauty of the outside flora into their homes from their own garden or yards.
