Downtown Rio Grande City got a little more colorful this spring as Rio Grande City Main Street and Rio Grande City Garden Club collaborated to add some beautiful floral touches to the pots located along Main and Second Streets.
“Our club’s partnership with Main Street was a great success,” said Laura Ramirez, Rio Grande City Garden Club Treasurer. “We continuously encourage the beautification of Rio Grande City by promoting gardening, horticulture and education.”
Rio Grande City Main Street enlisted the help of the Rio Grande City Garden Club to continue and promote beautification of the downtown area. RGC Main Street provided plants and fertilizer while RGC Garden Club members met on Saturday to replant pots, trim existing plants and add fertilizer.
Organized in 1948, Rio Grande City Garden Club is a member of the Texas Garden Clubs, Inc. and boasts a total of 10, 177 members throughout the state and a member of the Garden Club of America. The club promotes the love of gardening, floral design, horticulture, civic responsibilities, landscaping, environmental concerns, and garden therapy for men, women and children and encourages participation and support in educational programs for all ages. They encourage the community to preserve, protect and conserve the natural resources of Rio Grande City.
