We challenge you to choose that one invasive plant, in your own space that has been nagging at you (Garlic Mustard and Japanese Honeysuckle are up there!). Plan and implement a mission to eradicate it in the next two weeks.Let's free our neighborhoods from invasive plants! info@weedwrangle.org

The Indianapolis Garden Club Takes Action in Conservation

From the time of our founding, IGC has worked to restore, improve and protect the quality of our environment through educational programs and actions in the field of conservation and civic improvements. This year we are inviting you to join us in our efforts by taking The Great Healthy Yard Pledge.

The majority of land in the United States is owned by private citizens like us and together we can make a real difference. Studies have shown that even very small amounts of pesticides, fertilizers and pharmaceuticals in our water can adversely impact human health. Taking the pledge is an important and simple step to a cleaner safer water supply.

“I pledge to take care of my yard without synthetic pesticides, weed killers and fertilizers except on rare occasions to resolve an infestation or to improve habitat for native plants and wildlife. I also pledge not to throw pharmaceuticals or chemicals down my drains or toilets.”

A tribute to Landscape Architect Claire Bennett

The Indianapolis Garden Club provided funding for this video about trailblazing local landscape architect, Claire Bennett.  Claire contributed to many recognizable landmarks in our city as well as being a pioneering woman in her profession, locally and nationally.  The video also touches on her personal life and challenges of raising a family, caring for a disabled husband, and starting her own business during a time when few women were trained or worked in her field.  An interesting social and professional commentary about an important contributor to the cultural landscapes of Indianapolis.
