Public Gardens

The Evergreen Garden Club (EGC) was established in 1965. Since then, club members have continuously responded to community needs for beautification at numerous public spaces. Members volunteer many hours each growing season by planting, weeding and watering. The Club and community benefit from, and appreciate the efforts of novice-through-expert gardeners working together.

Below is a list of our 9 public garden projects 
the Evergreen Garden Club is currently working on.  For more information email:

Evergreen Metro Water District

4671 Highway 73 - by the Dam

Constructed in 1991, this garden was designed by Garden Club members at the request of Evergreen Metro Water District. The primary focus of the garden is to provide a xeriscape demonstration of water-thrifty plants suitable to the mountain community. Over 30 members participated in the initial planting. It is the Club's largest and most visible project.
