The Tallahassee Garden Club honored its longest standing members today (3-14-12)
Twenty-eight members were honored during a ceremony at the Carriage House. Each member honored has been a part of the Garden Club for at least 50 years. And the longest-standing member has been there for more than 60 years.
"The wonderful women who are in garden club have made it such a pleasure and the women who were already in it were so nurturing for all of young women. I just can't say enough about garden club," says Eloise Harbeson, the Tallahassee Garden Club's longest standing member.
Harbeson has been a member since 1948. She says it was her grandmother that spurred her interest in gardening. Harbeson's advice for would-be-gardeners? Join in on the fun and learn as much as you can.
