Moneta Garden Club (MGC) received a 2015-2016 “Keys to the Future” Youth Project Grant sponsored by the Virginia Federation of Garden
Clubs, Inc.

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.  

Hilda Lindell, a member the Moneta Garden Club, ​received the top award for her “Underwater” design at the 2013 Convention Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs held recently in Charlottesville.The Standard Flower Show included all miniature and small designs and represented all of the design types in modern floral designs.  Lindell won a Petite Awards in the small design division.
