Welcome to the Dix Hills Garden Club
The Dix Hills Garden Club was founded and federated in 1974 to encourage an interest in gardening, and to educate members on the many facets of gardening, horticulture, ecology and the environment.
We began with 9 dedicated gardeners who met in one member's home, and have grown to a membership of
40 people who enjoy sharing our knowledge and love of gardening.
Our Mission is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening among amateurs, to aid in the protection of native plants and birds, to create floral designs and to encourage civic beautification.
Mentioned in The New York Times
Our club was mentioned in the article, Dix Hills, N.Y.: Large Lots and Good Schools. in the December 30, 2015 Real Estate Section of The New York Times. The author contacted our Publicity Chair, Nancy Binger, after seeing our brochure in the Dix Hills Library.
FGCNYS 2016 POETRY WINNER
The Dix Hills Garden Club sponsored three young writers in the 2016 FGCNYS Poetry contest this year. We were proud to have Lynn Pezold, Second District Director, and our DHGC Co-Presidents, Nancy Binger and Christine Lagana, acknowledge Leyla Binger and her Award winning poem at our Fall Into a Garden Fantasy Luncheon Fundraiser. Leyla was well spoken and very composed as she read her poem to the 100+ guests who were in attendance.
Roses Are Special
by Leyla Binger
Roses are pretty
Roses are sometimes red
Roses are scented and sweet
Roses say, “I love you” quietly.
"When you increase the number of gardens, you increase the number of heavens too!" ~Mehmet Murat Ildan
