Some of the residents in the Mexia area who like plants and gardens work together through the Mexia Garden Club to promote this past time.
Garden Club President Gayle Beene spoke to the Mexia Lions Club recently about the purpose of the garden club, its activities, history and accomplishments. She also encouraged anyone interested to join the group. Though most members are women, the club is open to men, too.
Apart from the members’ personal enjoyment of gardening, the club’s goals are to study and encourage interest in gardening, encourage civic planting, and protect wildflowers and birds.
The club meets monthly for nine months of the year – they break for summer – with each meeting featuring an informative speaker on some aspect of gardening.
