MGC hosts a booth at the Mansfield Farmers Market. The event is held on Saturdays during Spring, Fall and Summer in the parking lot on the North East Corner of Broad Street and Walnut Creek Drive.
In loving memory of Lucretia Mills. Those of us who were friends with Lucretia knew what a tireless worker she was for the beautification of the City of Mansfield. One of her favorite projects was the white gazebo on Walnut Creek Drive that she and her husband Gary took care of for many years.
Lucretia was a charter member of and past president of Mansfield Garden Club. Our club is privileged to honor her by taking on the job of restoring and maintaining the gazebo as a club project. We have recently restored and replanted the garden that surrounds the gazebo. Garden club volunteers lovingly decorate the gazebo for the seasons. Stop by to relax and take some fabulous photos!
We also maintain the City’s Native Texas Demonstration gardens at the Chris Burkett City Services Building located at 620 S. Wisteria, Mansfield, TX 76063. There are six garden plots that MCG volunteers care for. Our goal is to showcase native Texas plants that use minimal water.
The MGC has partnered with the City of Mansfield to plant a garden that attracts the beautiful Monarch Butterfly. Some of the host plants include Mexican milkweed (Asclepias curassavica), fennel, parsley, and passionflower (Passiflora incarnata). The garden is located between the Library and the Mansfield Activity Center. The MGC schedules workdays that often include volunteers from area schools, clubs and, of course, our wonderful members.
Mansfield Garden Club is working in collaboration with the Man House Museum on a landscaping restoration project, including creating nineteenth century flowering "cottage flower gardens" in the two garden beds directly in front of the house and next to the porch.
Our members volunteer their services to help landscape the Habitat for Humanity homes here in Mansfield.
