Since 1927, The Bedford Garden Club continues to be one of the leading service clubs in Bedford. As the oldest active gardening club in Cuyahoga County, The Bedford Garden Club has provided educational programs, plant sales and exchanges, field trips and other activities for the past 88 years. Members support or maintain a variety of gardens and projects, including the rotunda beds at City Hall, the Bedford Historical Museum, Babyland in Bedford Cemetery and the Community Gardens behind Central Elementary School. The project this year will be the installation of flower boxes on the historic Union Street Bridge.

Throughout the year, the Club maintains a regular schedule of educational programs, fundraisers, field trips and other activities.  The Bedford Garden Club meets the third Thursday of most months March thru November at the Ellenwood Recreation Center, 124 Ellenwood Road, in Bedford.

Members support or maintain a variety of gardens throughout the City including planting flowers in the rotunda beds at City Hall, around the monument on Bedford Commons, Babyland at the Cemetery, the Union Street Bridge and fully maintain the garden behind the Bedford Historical Museum,

By its volunteer efforts, the mission of The Bedford Garden Club is to help the City beautify Bedford with public gardens, while encouraging and enabling resident to garden.  We have fun sharing ideas, learning from each other and socializing, too.

As concerned citizens, they have a history of interest and involvement in environmental issues that impact the community, sustainability, and civic beautification. The Club typically meets the third Thursday of each month – except in January, February and July – at the Ellenwood Recreation Center. Review the Program schedule for exact information.
