The Camelot Garden Club supports a number of projects in our community. Contact us to find out how you can get your project funded.
Pollinator Garden at the Camelot Elementary School
Garden Club members work with Camelot Elementary School to maintain this pollinator garden throughout the school year. Designated as a National Wildlife Federation Certified Schoolyard Habitat, all the plants were chosen for the food and shelter they provide pollinators. Led by Charlie Kackley.
Camelot Re-Leaf Project
Camelot Re-Leaf is a group of Camelot neighbors working to educate others on the value of native canopy trees, and to help other homeowners plant the next generation of trees. Supported by the Camelot Garden Club, ReLeaf offers native canopy trees at wholesale prices, with planting and mulching done by landscaping professionals. Led by Charlie Kackley, Cindy Davis, and Sylvia Sloan. Learn more about Camelot ReLeaf.
Self-Watering Tomato Buckets
Working with Hands on Harvest and Fairfax Master Gardeners, Garden Club members help assemble self-watering tomato buckets to benefit the Falls Church High School Food Pantry. The aim is to teach people how to grow their own food, and to provide better access to fresh produce. Led by Carrie Conley.
Leewood Nursing Home - Garden Therapy
Garden Club members provide materials and assistance to the residents of Leewood Nursing Home in the creation of seasonal arrangements and decorations, while providing a socially-interactive and purposeful activity. Led by Ann Picco.
Ronald McDonald House
Located on the Inova Hospital grounds, the Ronald McDonald House provides a comfortable “home-away-from-home” for the family members of hospitalized and sick children. Garden Club members provide and maintain plantings on the grounds of the house to create an attractive and relaxing environment. Members also provide dining room table arrangements for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Led by Sheila Allen
