A Poem to inspire you -- "Impressionist Picture of a Garden" Give me sunlight, cupped in a paintbrush, And smear the red of peonies Over my garden. Splash blue upon it, The hard blue of Canterbury bells, Paling through larkspur Into heliotrope, To wash away among forget-me-nots. Dip red again to mix a purple, And lay on pointed flares of lilacs against bright green. Streak yellow for nasturtiums and marsh marigolds And flame it up to orange for my lilies. - Amy Lowell, 1919

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.
