Annual Membership Fees Have Been Waived for 2021!
If you were ever thinking of joining the Keyport Garden Club, now would be a great time!
The Keyport Garden Club board has announced that annual membership fees for 2021 have been waived for all new and renewing members. This decision was based on a desire to help the community during the pandemic, and to encourage members to engage and become involved with the Club, which has been operating in Keyport since 2008.
The mission of the Keyport Garden Club is to encourage civic pride and enhance the natural beauty of Keyport NJ’s neighborhoods, public spaces and highway corridors. The Club endeavors to accomplish the goals of volunteerism, education, and partnerships using environmentally sound horticultural practices. We also hope to involve more children and young adult activities this year.
While many local in-person activities have been curtailed for a time, and the annual Keyport Garden Walk will go virtual for the second year (see 2020 Garden Walk here), President Kim Mundrane-Tuohy said, “There are many opportunities to get involved and learn from one another". In January, our first ZOOM seminar of 2021, “Success with Orchids” by Judy Lipman, was excellent; and we plan more seminars, webinars and presentations throughout the year. Plans are underway for the annual Keyport Garden Walk and the accompanying GardenTalks; and activities such as Cuppa Cheer, planting and maintaining public gardens, our seed library, and more are all continuing. The Club welcomes new members, returning members, and those who may have opportunities to participate differently during these unusual times.”
