Four Counties Garden Club creates a
Healing Garden at Peter's Place
Four Counties marked the centennial of our club in December of 2022. To commemorate the event, the club, as well as individual members, made significant financial gifts to Peter's Place as seed money to fund the creation of a healing garden. Peter's Place is a local support center for grieving children and families. The project took an empty, abandoned lot adjacent to the center and transformed it into a fenced garden. The purpose of this private oasis is to give children, families and the staff a quiet place to process emotions while immersed in nature. Club members continue to support the garden through community outreach projects.
Four Counties Garden Club supports T&E Cares each year.
The mission of T&E Cares is to maintain a network of people providing financial and other material assistance to persons in need in and around the Tredyffrin and Easttown township area in Chester County. For the past several years, Four Counties Garden Club has made 40-50 holiday centerpieces to provide families receiving support from T&E Care some joy at the holidays. In exchange, FCGC members receive a yummy lunch and holiday camaraderie!
Four Counties Garden Club revitalizes the
Physic Garden at the Pennsylvania Hospital
Philadelphia forefathers, including Benjamin Franklin, designed the current campus of the Pennsylvania Hospital. Their plan included a Physic garden to grow medicines to help heal the sick. The garden was never built until in 1976, when members of Philadelphia garden clubs decided to make this a bicentennial project. Cecily Clark, led the charge to transform tennis courts, with fellow members of Four Counties Garden Club at her side, into the gardens our ancestors intended.
