2017 Inspired Gardener Nominee

On Thursday, May 4th at the Dist. VII Spring Meeting, Windermere GC member Vicki Hearst was recognized as our club’s nominee for the “Inspired Gardener” for Dist. VII.  The Inspired Gardener award is for garden club members who are very active in gardening but who are not officers or chairman at the state or national level.

Vicki was not selected as the district’s “Inspired Gardener” but we are still very proud of her. Her work at the butterfly garden at Windermere Elementary School and designing the new landscaping at the 1887 Windermere Historical Schoolhouse, Crazy Card Party Fundraiser Decoration Chairman,  and many other club projects throughout the years has made her quite an asset. She not only was an asset for our club but to her church, friends, and family for floral arrangements she has created and landscaping advice she has given.

Our new District VII Director Sue Roberts recognizing Vicki Hearst as our club’s nominee for the “Inspired Gardener”.
