Other Activities

The club is undertaking a new project beginning in 2017. Our members will be working to convert the Borough owned corner lot bordered by Avenues A & E into a low maintenance green space. This activity is being funded by a Community Collaboration Grant awarded to our club by the Rotary Club of Forest Hills. Look for information in the near future as the Garden Club will be looking for volunteers to lend a hand at the project site.


Late Bloomers Garden Club

The Late Bloomers Garden Club of Forest Hills formed in 1999. The members are a spirited group who gather outside of their daily work schedules to give color and beauty to the Forest Hills Community.

The group maintains 6 flower beds along Ardmore Boulevard in Forest Hills. Monthly meetings are held at one of the member’s houses.

The Late Bloomers also created the Forest Hills Farmers’ Market in 2003. The first season started in June and ran through October of that same year. It has returned annually since then, and is a successful contribution to the Forest Hills community.
