The Green Thumbs Garden Club
Oldham County, Kentucky 40031

Welcome!
We are a group of local area residents interested in ornamental plants and flowers -- learning new things about gardening – visiting established gardens – going to nurseries – listening to plant experts, enthusiasts, and growers – and lending our combined “green” talents to a few community service projects.

Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to educate,  to inform and to exchange information and ideas relative to gardening and horticulture and to assist in gardening related community activities.

In The Beginning …
The Green Thumbs Garden Club began in 2000, under the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.  At that time, the group decided that its interests would stay wide-ranging and totally non-competitive (i.e., no “best backyard of the year” members’ contests here!).

What Do We Do?
Since then, we have been gathering on the 2nd Monday of each month.  Usually, we begin with a short, informal business meeting, and then spend a wonderful morning with a guest speaker; or going on a “field trip”; or occasionally pulling on garden gloves to help local groups with some pruning or weeding.

Would You Like To Join?
Click on our website navigation links at the top left of this page to learn more about our activities.  Members’ backgrounds range from Master Gardeners (who also meet here in their own separate group) to “Say, what kind of weed is this?”  The only prerequisites to join are being interested, enthusiastic, and willing to share with a congenial, relaxed group.

If you would like to give us a try, please come to one of our meetings.  We do encourage you to contact us (click here), just to check where we’ll be meeting that day – since chances are, we may be out … doing something interesting!

Advisor: Oldham County Agricultural Agent
