The 2017-2018 GGC calendar winds down. 

Flowercade and the GGC plant sale have recently concluded. Both were great successes. Several awards were garnered by GGC members during Flowercade. The plant sale was greeted by cold winds. Nevertheless, gardeners came out and selected quality plants. 

The District II and 90th TGC, Inc. 2018 Spring Conventions have concluded. Several  awards were presented to GGC. Details to follow.  

The 2018 Spring issue of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension newsletter published an article by County Extension Agent Laura Miller detailing the efforts led by GGC member Pam Braak to document research into potential Rose Rosette resistant varieties.

We can be proud of our commitment to carry out the GGC mission statement: "...to promote interest in horticulture, landscape and floral design; to further the protection and conservation of wildflowers and trees; to stimulate appreciation and protection of wildlife; to promote city and highway beautification; to actively suport environmental concerns; ad to encourage education in all these objectives."
