Roadside Beautification and Wildflowers
The Wildflower Program began in 1974 when Mrs. Virginia Hand Callaway, then chair of the Birds and Wildflowers Committee of the Garden Club of Georgia, Inc., spearheaded a movement to plant and protect wildflowers on our roadsides.
GCG in partnership with Georgia DOT began a program to provide funds and support to protect and enhance the roadside wildflowers and promote the seeding of annuals and perennials. In recent years, the planting of spring bulbs brings early blooms to major expressways.
State and District Chairmen encourage local garden clubs to make donations to this effort. Clubs who donate at least $25 receive a certificate of appreciation. See Donation for the form to use to send your donation. You can also make an Honorarium/Memorial donation to this wide-reaching program.
