Healdsburg Garden Club Community Projects

West Plaza Rose Garden: The West Plaza Rose Garden in downtown Healdsburg was rededicated by the Healdsburg Garden Club in 2015, following a two year project of planting and caring for 40 new rose bushes and working with the City of Healdsburg, Healdsburg’s Rotary Club, and two local landscaping vendors to revitalize the long neglected rose garden.

Healdsburg Living Center: The Healdsburg Garden Club helped design a vegetable garden and installed a succulent garden.

Healdsburg Hospital: The Healdsburg Garden Club designed and installed a water conservation and habitat garden alongside the Emergency Room, and installed a succulent garden.

Alliance Medical Center: The Healdsburg Garden Club designed and installed a courtyard with benches and artwork, a water conservation and habitat garden and a succulent garden.

The FireSafe Demonstration Garden --located next to the Cal Fire station off Lytton Springs Road in Healdsburg--is a joint project of Sonoma County Master Gardeners, Fire Safe Sonoma, Cal Fire and the Healdsburg Garden Club.

School Gardens: The Healdsburg Garden Club has worked with Healdsburg Unified School District to provide gardening advice and supplies to classes for their organic gardens. Healdsburg Junior High has had several garden projects, supervised by Garden Teacher Edna Fogerty. Students have planted vegetables and flowers that thrive in our winters and have tended worm farms, composting bins, and planned their spring and summer gardens. In 2002, the City of Healdsburg gave the HJH Garden a grant to construct a greenhouse. In September 2001, community volunteers completed a fence around the expanded Junior High Garden that has been used by many student classes, and the class installed a shed to house garden tools and supplies. Volunteers from the HGC included Kathleen Palmer and John Essman.

Healdsburg Animal Shelter: The Healdsburg Garden Club completed a beautification project for the Healdsburg Animal Shelter. Climbing roses, flowers and shrubs provided fragrance and bright color outside the Shelter offices where the resident dogs took their daily exercises and met prospective “family”.

Memory Garden: Work was completed on September 2, 2002 in the Healdsburg Animal Shelter Memory Garden. Donations for plants in memory of beloved animal friends were accepted. Numerous HGC members participated in the work parties. The project was led by Kathleen Palmer, with funding provided by HGC.

Healdsburg Airport: The Healdsburg Airport approached the Garden Club to do a beautification project around their terminal with planter boxes and landscaping. HGC member Marsha McPheeters led this effort, and funding was provided by the Airport and HGC.

Senior Center: The Healdsburg Senior Center approached the Garden Club to replant their planter boxes. HGC member Marsha McPheeters led this effort, and funding was provided by HGC.

We would like to thank the local merchants who have helped by donating supplies: Love Farms, Healdsburg Landscape Materials, Healdsburg Nursery, and Russian River Rose Company.

A special thanks to Cinderella Nursery for providing many of the plants for the Animal Shelter. Cinderella Nursery is a non-profit nursery who receives un-salable plants from local nurseries, cares for them and provides them to projects that get kids out into gardens.
