Celebrating with the Lullwater Garden Club
A few weeks ago as summer weather descended on Atlanta, friends and members of the Lullwater Garden Club celebrated National Garden Week with a new grant and bench dedication. Last fall, the 83-year old club launched a long-term revitalization plan to better manage water, erosion, and invasive species as well as expand trails and cultivate a wildlife habitat. Therefore, members were especially pleased to announce that the garden had received a Love Your Block grant from the City of Atlanta.
The grant was used to reach out to the community and government about the garden’s history and plans and to spruce up an area in the garden dedicated to one of the Club’s distinguished members.
The star of the morning was Jean Johnson Givens, a Georgia master gardener, recipient of three degrees from Emory University, and lifelong resident of Druid Hills. Jean’s passion for horticulture has enriched the garden since she became a member of the Lullwater Garden Club in 1959.
“I would like to thank the city for honoring us with a grant and Jean Givens for the abundance of her contribution,” club president Kim Storbeck declared as everyone celebrated “Jean Givens Day” at the garden.
