If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. — Marcus Tullius Cicero
Bay Forest is a fabulous community about two miles from downtown Bethany Beach. The developer of this great place to live came up with an idea to build a potting shed along with a large herb garden. Gardeners within Bay Forest could then create a serene place to grow herbs and flowers to distribute to residents of the community. The Herb Garden Committee was created to provide oversight and guidance on the use of the garden. Five women from this Committee decided to take things even further. They wanted to get all the active gardeners within Bay Forest to participate in even more activities and to expand the gardening knowledge of the group as well. These ladies researched other garden clubs within Delaware and from their research created the Salt Air Gardeners. The garden club started in October of 2016 and quickly grew to 50 members.
The Salt Air Gardeners is an independent, self-supporting Club, and a member of the Delaware Federation of Garden Clubs and National Garden Club. Our members enjoy monthly meetings, with guest speakers, field trips, gardening activities, and community projects. The Club is full of life-long learners. We are a fun loving group, who enjoy the company of other gardeners. We all believe in giving back to the greater community and protecting the environment which has given us so much to enjoy!
