President’s Project


Plant a Tree


It is proposed that one large tree can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for up to four people.

Trees also store carbon dioxide in their fibers helping to clean the air and reduce the negative effects that CO2 has on our environment. So, with every breath you take, thank a tree. Maybe even give one a hug.

We challenge each club to donate to the National Garden Club “Penny Pines” project.

NGC has partnered with the USDA Forest Service to reforest areas that have been damaged by natural disasters.



Grace your home with houseplants


It’s no secret that being surrounded by greenery does wonders for our physical and mental health. Certain plants have been found (NASA 1989) to not only purify our indoor air but provide allergy relief, improve sleep quality and reduce stress levels. Some, such as English Ivy and Bamboo Palm, diffuse toxic chemicals including benzine, Formaldehyde, and Trichloroethylene. Other good choices include: Dracaena Janet Craig, Rubber Plant, Weeping Fig, Peace Lily, Spider Plant, Philodendron and Pothos.
