Gardening Friends is a unique organization which provides gardening information and supports projects beneficial to the City of Lufkin.  The organization is non-profit and membership is open to the public.

The Organization sponsors a lecture the first Thursday from February through November at 7 p.m. in the Community Services Building at Angelina College.   A drawing for plants is held after the lecture and refreshments are served.

Membership dues for Gardening Friends are $25 per year and a PDF application is available.

The Gardening Friend's organization is unique in that you can participate at the level you are most comfortable at, i.e., you can attend lectures and receive the newsletters, or you can be a part of the weeding team or a committee member

The Gardening Friends of Lufkin dedicated the hippo memorial statue located at the entrance to Ellen Trout Park and Zoo on Tuesday, June 8, 2004.  The hippo statue, a project of the Gardening Friends, was placed in memory of Nancy Wannemacher and other gardening friends. The names of Rachel Dowling and Michael Mylan have been added to the bronze plaque.

Volunteer Gardeners Needed!

City Arborist Rachel Emrick is sending out an SOS for those gardeners who have some time to nurture some plants that will be given away at the plant drawing after the lectures. Plants and seeds will be provided by Rachel. We might even throw in a pot or two. If you have time and the inclination to help the Gardening Friends, please call
Rachel at 633-0431.
