The South Haven Garden Club members make 20-35 floral arrangements a week for Hospice patients and their families. These “green gifts” are made with donated flowers from local stores, nurseries and from our own gardens. These arrangements of fresh flowers are intended to be uplifting for each recipient and include a tag from “Hospice at Home” and Garden Club. The hospice patients so enjoy and appreciate receiving the bouquets from our volunteers!
How can club members participate?
Come join us to work with the flowers. An alternative from doing the actual floral arrangements, members could donate (the always needed) flowers from their personal gardens or if you know of any additional sources of green materials please let us know. We also need volunteers to pick up flowers at the donation locations.
We meet at Hospice at Home, 05055 Blue Star Hwy, South Haven every Tuesday from 1-2:30pm to do the floral arrangements.
How many volunteers are needed?
A minimum of 4-volunteers are needed each Tuesday:
No special skills required.
Time: 1-2 hours per week
The South Haven Garden Club provides the labor, materials and flowers. Some flowers and plants are donated by local businesses.
