Civic Projects & Public Outreach
As the oldest civic organization in the city of Frisco, the Frisco Garden Club and its members work hard to beautify the city and provide public outreach. Several projects are highly visible and used by members of our Frisco community. Club members are required to participate on committees that help support established projects. New projects are considered and brought to a vote by the membership.
The garden club manages several gardens throughout the city. Each garden project is an opportunity for volunteers to come together, using their unique skills to achieve a common goal.
Each month, from September to May, our club's Vice President of Programs and Host Committee provides the club's membership with an informative program on a variety of issues. This adult education component is an important function of our club. Whether provided by a Certified Master Gardener or a Civic Leader, the topics are of interest to gardeners of North Texas.
Water is always an issue in North Texas. Whether it's too much in a short amount of time or too little in a much longer amount of time; water and its conservation are of interest to the club's public and personal gardens. The club members share best practices for using drought-tolerant native plants, properly managing irrigation systems, and harvesting rainwater. The Shawnee Trail Demonstration Garden was gifted a Rain Water Harvesting System in 2023 by a water-conscientious Boy Scout earning his Eagle Scout Merit Badge.
As Lifetime Members of the Heritage Association of Frisco, our Heritage Gazebo committee members volunteer time to decorate for the holidays. The club also works in partnership with the City of Frisco and other area organizations to cosponsor the Memorial Day and 9/11 City-Wide Observances. We show our appreciation to the Parks and Recreation Department during National Garden Week through our Hospitality Committee.
