Theme for 2015
Enhancing our Environment, our Community and our Friendships
Through our Actions.
"Our mission is to promote the love of gardening, an interest in horticulture and floriculture, and a continued commitment to the environment.
Through our interests, educational resources and activities, we enrich ourselves, our friendships and stimulate a pride in our community."
The very first thing that visitors to Elk Rapids discover are the magnificent gardens beautifying the Village. These gardens are our primary focus; volunteer hours spent weeding, mulching, and laughing!
Its not all work! ERGC shows their community pride with participation in Harbor Days activities and village events.
Members take occasional field trips to experience new concepts in gardening. We have toured Meijer Gardens, Dow Gardens, the Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island, and others.
Don't forget our Elk Rapids Garden Walk; a classy event showcasing our area resident's private landscapes.
Scheduled monthly meetings offer programs with guest speakers on topics ranging from gardening and floral design to the environment. Click the "Meetings 2015" tab (above) to check out this year's offerings. This is a great chance for socializing and reconnecting with friends.
If you would like to contribute to the beautiful environment of Elk Rapids and learn about gardening, floral design and landscaping, please get in touch with us or come to one of our meetings!
