The Fox Point Federated Garden Club, established in 1950, attempts to advance knowledge and interest in gardening, aid in the protection and conservation of natural resources, and promote interest in wild flowers and birds for it’s members as well as the community of Fox Point.
Village Projects and Events
The Village of Fox Point benefits from the many projects of the garden club. One of the beautiful spots in Fox Point is the Fox Point Federated Garden Club Perennial Garden located in the medial strip at the corner of Green Tree Road and Santa Monica Blvd. A new garden, a Butterfly Waystation filled with nectar and host plants for butterflies, was planted at the Indian Creek Park in 2014. Along Lake Drive, hundreds of golden yellow daffodils bloom each spring, planted by garden club volunteers. Additionally, members partner with the Village forester regarding maintenance and purchasing of new shrubs for the plantings along Lake Drive. The Indian Creek Woods has also benefited from The Fox Point Garden Club’s donations of native plants and contributions for official signage.
Each April the Fox Point Federated Garden Club joins with the Village to sponsor the Annual Arbor Day Celebration. The club pays the annual fee for Fox Point’s Tree City designation, donates a tree, and provides Arbor Day educational packets and free seedlings to those in attendance. Fox Point’s status as a Bird City is also supported by the club.
The annual May Market Plant sale, held the second Saturday of May at the Longacre Pavilion, raises funds for the club’s activities.
