Tomball Garden Club was founded by 22 members of the Tomball Community on October 23, 1956. Most were without previous experience in gardening and horticulture but had the wish to beautify their home, yards and community.
The Tomball Garden Club has continued to maintain the goal of providing horticultural knowledge to club members, aid local community gardens and to participate in community projects.
The Tomball Garden Club has participated in a variety of service projects for the Tomball community.
Each month member bring a designated food item to be donated to Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministry (TEAM).
The Club has erected a rose garden at the Tomball Depot located at 201 S. Elm Street in honor of Dorothy Beckendorf, a long-time garden club member.
Members of the club maintain flower beds at the Tomball Museum Center (510 N. Pine Street).
Three times a year the club collects items to donate to the VA Hospital.
Field trips are organized 3-4 times a year. Members have toured:
Joshua’s Native Plants
Nelson’s Water Gardens
Texas A&M Holistic Gardens
and many more.
