YOUR KSC Garden Club–Jan Update 2018

Good Morning Garden Club!

A quick note to keep folks up-to-speed on all the “happenings”.

  • We had another highly successful Lobby Poinsettia Display (LPD) for the holidays.  2017 saw us pick-up 3-NASA Centers!!  LPD 2018 will see even MORE collaboration!
  • If you drive North on SR-3 (North of NASA Parkway East), you will notice on the East side of the roadway/shoulder across from Roberts Road survey stakes noting the NEW “No Mowing” wildflowers test site!  If you want to be involved in the worth-wild effort contact me.  We can always use some help/private funds.


  • Watch the KSC Daily News for the following:

We are organizing a Whiffle Ball Tournament for February 9th to raise funds for the Club’s SPRING PLANTINGS!!  I need a Project Manager so contact me if you want to volunteer.

Whiffle Ball Tournament for Spring Flowers-Fund Drive

Your KSC Garden Club is swinggin’ for the fences!  Spring planting season is right around the corner and we need funds to re-plant and refresh our 9-Gardens on Center!  We need funds or is that FUN?! To that end, we have procured an official whiffle-ball set and will organize a full tournament to be held 1-day, February 9th after work starting at 3pm. This tournament will last 2-hours with the winning team being crowned “KSC 2018 Whiffle-ball Champions!” Please visit our website for more details click here.  Cost is $3  CASH per person at time of event for teams of two to five.  ALL proceeds go directly into the ground!

  • KSC walk-run is KSC Walk-Run for March 13, 2018 and we will have an outreach display, signs, and need 2-folks to volunteer to chat and take e-mail addresses.  You get a FREE Walk-run Shirt!  J Contact me.


  • Finally, we are proud to unveil our NEW logo!  Some things are worth waiting for!


  • We continue to try and “Partner” with the Visitor’s Center.   If someone would like to help Project Manage this effort and/or create a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) please contact me.


I welcome your comments and ideas for innovation and collaboration as well as how best to grow our vision of “Flowers Make Humans Happy” in alignment with our CORE NASA Mission(s).
