Our Mission
 
   "Our mission is to promote the love of gardening, an interest in horticulture and floriculture and a continued commitment to our environment.
   Through our interests, educational resources and activities, we enrich ourselves, our friendships and stimulate a spirit of pride in our community."
 Sharon Lanier
 
About the Elk Rapids Garden Club ...
 
We are a diverse and eclectic group of accomplished ladies who share friendships and a mutual joy of gardening, in the most beautiful community in northern Michigan.
 
 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!

It's not all work!  ERGC shows community pride with involvement 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 Mackinaw Island, and others.

Don't forget our Elk Rapids Garden Walk; a classy event showcasing area resident's private landscapes.
