For over 87 years, the purpose of the Williamsburg Garden Club has been to widen the knowledge of nature by studying her trees, fruits, birds, flowers and gardens and to encourage civic plantings.
Many members today are from other cities, and we welcome new members from all areas.
While our individual gardening knowledge has increased through our club programs, the club as a whole has helped to beautify the Village. We have planted flowering trees along Main Street and placed large planters with seasonal flowers at street corners. We help maintain plants at several locations in and around Williamsburg. Our Memorial Garden, begun in 1996 is located behind the old Williamsburg High School on the original town square.
We purchase, plant, and provide flower boxes on the Main Street Bridge in the spring and also purchase and place Christmas decorations in them for December. We have provided trees for both Elementary and High schools and partnered with CG&E with a “Links to Leadership” grant that planted the original landscaping for the new high school. We recently planted Memorial trees at the High School.
Partnering with the State of Ohio we planted 50,000 daffodils on Rt. 32 and added trees to both sides of the interchange at 133 and SR 32 as part of the Ohio Bicentennial Celebration.
The Williamsburg Garden Club encourages homeowners to improve the appearance of their surroundings to help bring beauty to the Village with an annual “Civic Beautification” award. We participate in Village-wide events such as the “Christmas Walk” and “June in Olde Williamsburgh.” We also create fun events for everyone with "Patriotic Doors in Williamsburg" and "Scarecrows on Main Street".
