Each year Dexter’s Green Day celebration seems to grow like a weed, but is always as beautiful as a newly bloomed orchid on a sunny blue day.
Like most beautiful flora, Green Day isn’t open for long. Visitors to Monument Park on Saturday, May 20 will be greeted by a bevy of beautiful plants and ample opportunity to learn about their care from people who make love of plants their business, their passion, or both.
The Dexter Garden Club organizes Green Day each year to celebrate spring and raise funds for their organization during what is simultaneously their primary yearly fundraiser and also their single best opportunity to be ambassadors of nature’s beauty out in the community.
They hope their love of nature will pollinate your mind and you’ll subsequently take root in their member rolls.
Organizers have brought in several local businesses to sponsor the event, and members from several local garden enthusiast groups including the Michigan Dahlia Association, Dexter Rhododendron’s, and Michigan Regional Lily Society.
Dexter Community Schools students will also be selling plants to raise money for their own initiatives within the school system, while at the same time getting their hands dirty with nature’s bounty and perhaps one day returning as the next generation of Dexter Garden Club members.
Last year the Dexter Farm to School program alone brought 1,000 plants to Green Day, which on its own is worth seeing. To top if off, the masters at the Dexter Garden Club bring their own impressive collection that covers many tables in gorgeous foliage.
