at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens
The Red Mountain Garden Club has been a vital partner with the Birmingham Museum of Art since the Museum’s inception 60 years ago. When the Museum opened its doors on its present site a portion of the property was designated as a Memorial Garden established and cared for by the Red Mountain Garden Club. That stewardship continues today with the Museum’s beautiful Red Mountain Garden Club Memorial Garden, named last year among the Ten Great Public Spaces for 2010 by the American Planning Association.
This year the Red Mountain Garden Club plans a special project to enhance the beauty and function of the garden through a new lighting design. Funding for continued care and improvements to the Memorial Garden is provided by the Club through a variety of sources. One of the most significant funding sources is the proceeds from the Club’s annual greenery sale. This year’s sale will take place on December 7 from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Co-chairs for the sale are Anne Couch and Holly Goodbody.
