Garden Gleanings - Gardening club needs a name!!!

Posted Tuesday, June 17, 2008, at 8:23 AM

The more we promote the gardening club, we get asked for the name of our group. If we can solve that today, we will get the new name in the paper this week.

I am not real creative that way but I will throw some out and let the more talented finish it.

Bedford Gardeners

County Gardening Club

Community Gardening Club

Mid-Tenn Gardeners (thinking big)

Our Favorite Gardening Club (OFGC)

Gardening Together

The BC Garden Club (BC for Bedford County)(same for MT above)

The Green Thumb Gardeners

Seasons Gardening Group

The Garden People

The Gardeneers submitted by candasons07

What if we shortened that to Gardening Friends?

OK lets narrow it down.

The Green Hat Society

The Green Thumbs

Weed 'Em and Reap

Down to Earth

The Gardeneers

espoontoon if you are you going to be at the meeting Friday, could you bring this topic up?

As I mentioned last week, I will have to miss this one.

I see you all as "Green Thumbs", Garden Club type names sound so formal (you know, Ladies is frou-frou hats and tea cups.)

I am one of the disadvantaged. I have a "brown thumb", even the leaves on my silk plants fall off.

Good luck on finding the right name for your group.

I think Quantumcat has a very unique and amusing name-Weed 'Em and Reap! That's neat!!

I know nothing about gardening. Although, I have been telling my husband that I want to start one in the back yard. I never have time to do anything other than work. I have a 4 year old that keeps me pretty occupied otherwise!! Thanks for the invite though!!

Spring green?

Darker green for the older bunch.

The hats would keep the sun off.

Great ideas.

Would we have to get green hats? What color for the early bloomers?

-- Posted by stevemills on Tue, Jun 17, 2008, at 1:09 PM


Would the club then be divided into Early and Late Bloomers? ;)

I still like 'The Green Hat Society'!!!!

-- Posted by espoontoon on Tue, Jun 17, 2008, at 11:42 AM

I like those.

I thought of "The Down-to-Earth Garden Club ",

"Weed 'em and Reap" and "Bloom Where You're Planted".

Those might be better for committees or specific projects instead of the whole club.

We will take creativity from anywhere so, thanks. I will add it to the list above so all can be seen and considered at one time.

If you are reading this, why not be a member? No fees, no responsibilities and we don't shoot people who can not make it ti every meeting.

I'm not in the Garden club, but how about The Gardeneers? Just a thought!!
