This garden is in front of our Duluth Library. In the background you see the Duluth Depot. Duluth has many Garden Clubs. (over 25)  According to the Duluth Garden Flower Society, “These clubs were started by Rebecca Boyington, who started it by holding gardening meetings in her cozy Fon Du Lac home in far western Duluth in 1928.” The website goes on to say: were formed with civic beauty in mind. The clubs often approached the City of Duluth to ask permission to plant flowers in a park or along a roadway. The Society’s newly formed Central Club planted the very first roses at Leif Erikson Park, the precursor to the Leif Erikson Rose Garden. They also held contests in their neighborhoods challenging neighbors to plant more flowers and to make their neighborhood look more beautiful. In less than a decade the Society had a club in almost every Duluth neighborhood. Read more by visiting the website: Duluth Garden Flower Society
