- We shall support recycling projects and give recognition to businesses and local residents who also share these goals.
The Shelby Gardeners Club Springs Into Action
The Shelby Gardeners Club has been involved in the Heritage Garden on the township grounds since the vista’s inception in 1976. We are a working club as well as a community service organization, founded in 1973. The brick walkways, planted beds, gazebo, statuary and the fairy garden are supported by the club’s fundraiser. These range from craft and plant sales to our impressive bi-annual garden walk. We also host free community lectures throughout the year at the Shadbush Nature Center to education and share garden joy.
Come share your energy and beautification spirit with the community and the Shelby Garden Club at Heritage Garden. The club will host "Autumnpalooza" at 10 a.m. Oct. 19. For more information, contact the club at 586-741-5926.
New fountain planter welcomes Heritage Gardens visitors
The entrance to Heritage Gardens has been enhanced thanks to a $1,610 donation from the Shelby Community Foundation. The donation covered the club’s purchase of a six-foot concrete three-tier fountain, which was converted into the focus planter at the sidewalk entrance to Heritage Gardens.
Shelby Gardeners Bi-Annual Garden Walk 2018
In planning for the future, mark your calendar for mid-July, 2018. Our infamous Garden Walk is not to be missed. Are you interested in being on the 2018 Garden Walk or wish to recommend a garden? Please contact Lois Hayward (586.741.5926).
The beautiful Heritage Garden is maintained by the Shelby Gardeners Club. Serene and stunning, the location is commonly used for relaxation as well as photography sessions. It is located behind the Municipal Offices at 52700 Van Dyke Ave. south of 24 Mile Road and sits adjacent to a 2.5 acre spring-fed lake. As a testament to all the hard work performed by volunteers in maintaining and enhancing Shelby Township's natural beauty, SGC has donated the unique sculpture, "Petal Point" (pictured right) to reside at Heritage Garden.
The SGC invites you to join this great community service organization by contacting Cheryl Sypniewski at (586) 823-8555.
