The Meek’s Mill Garden Club was formed in 1978 to stimulate love of gardening, encourage home and community beautification, and to promote better horticultural practices through encouraging all forms of conservation. It was named after the first establishment in what was to become the Village of Constantine. Meek’s Mill Garden Club belongs to the National Council of State Garden Clubs and the Federated Garden Clubs of Michigan.
Members plan a yearly program including speakers and tours. The largest money maker is the evergreen swag and wreath sale around the Christmas holidays. The swags and wreaths are made by club members. The club has a plant and seed exchange in the spring. Every two years, the club hosts a judged flower show. Member’s floral arrangements have received state and national awards. Several members are certified master gardeners. The club is responsible for several planting sites within the village. Every month, they awards their Community Beautification Award.
The club meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Constantine United Methodist Church’s Asbury Hall. Membership is open to anyone interested in gardening and horticulture.
