NEWSLETTER FOR AFFILIATE GARDEN CLUBS
June 2014
From the Chair’s Corner: Kevin Borowiak, Affiliate Council Chair
It’s June — ALMOST summer!! Time for gardens and all the delights they offer,
and a time to come to Cleveland Botanical Garden and enjoy the many delights
offered there. If you are not a member, consider joining so that you may enjoy
the many changes that occur throughout the summer!
1) Many thanks to the Affiliates that participated in the container garden
planting for Hershey Children’s Garden. The theme of “A Child’s Garden
of Memories” yielded some super creative ideas!
2) GLOW 2014 has commitments from Affiliate Garden Clubs for 25 of the
35 trees that need decorating. We still need a few clubs to say “We
want to decorate a tree!” Contact me, Kevin Borowiak
([email protected]), or Ranelle Huber ([email protected]) to
confirm your participation.
3) Do not forget to let Jen Anderson (216.707.2866 or
[email protected]) know if you will decorate a scarecrow (or
two) for the Garden this fall. The Boy Scouts have been asked to
participate in order to fill all of the Garden with scarecrows….WE
CANNOT have more from the Scouts than from our Affiliates! Please get
on board and create a scarecrow to add to the fun!
Not receiving The Root? This is one of your benefits – don’t miss out! Send your

More News and Announcements
School Transportation Fund
Through immersive, sensory and hands-on
experiences at Cleveland Botanical Garden,
children more fully grasp the key plant
science concepts they study in the classroom.
Their Garden experience builds memories
that enable students to recall information
about plants, water, light, soil and animals
and then apply their knowledge in other
environments.
Even though the school year is coming to a close, and
most field trips to the Garden are completed
for the year, summer school AND the fall
loom before us. Please, ask your garden club
to consider making a contribution to the
Garden’s School Transportation Fund so
that money will be available for students in
the coming academic year. Checks should
be made to Cleveland Botanical Garden and
designated for the School Transportation
Fund.
If you have already donated this year, thank you!
Did you know that almost 500 classes
visited the Garden in 2013? Not
all area school districts,
however, have money in their
transportation budgets to make such
valuable, Garden-based learning available to
their students.
For many years, the Affiliates have loyally supported
the Garden’s efforts to provide meaningful
educational experiences to all children by
donating to the Garden’s School
Transportation Fund.
The School Transportation Fund helps subsidize the
cost of busing students from economically
disadvantaged school districts, including
Cleveland Metropolitan School District, to the
Garden. For example, round trip busing to
the Garden for a Cleveland school costs $150.
To stretch these dollars, Garden staff always
recommends more than one class from the
same school visit together.
Cleveland Metropolitan School District desires that
all its third graders and similar-aged students
in special needs classes study plant science at
the Garden each year. This could be as many
as 130 classes a year.
Request from Ranelle:
As I am getting to know so many of you,
I am interested in visiting your Affiliate
Garden Club meetings.
When you have a special program, show,
or just something interesting, let me
know – I’d love to join you!
Thank you!
