The exhibit also shows that the garden council is one of the largest supporters of Edina's parks. The council grows the flowers that are planted in city parks every year. Each club adopts a park, where they design the gardens and tend to them throughout the year, Franklin said.

The exhibit, "Edina Garden Council: Growing Edina for 60 years," opened at the Edina Historical Society on Jan. 4, and will remain on display until March 1. to noon Saturdays, at the historical society, 4711 W. 70th St. Monday, Feb. 4, at the historical society.

Franklin said the exhibit was created by considering the following question: "What is the Edina Garden Council?" One of the first things in the exhibit is a historical photo of women on a lawn in pearl necklaces and short waisted dresses, she said.

There were a number of times when the Garden Council joined other Edina groups to complete a project, including the League of Women Voters Edina and the Boy Scouts working with the council on recycling, and the Daughters of the American Revolution and League of Women Voters Edina helping to Nike Uptempo Light Bone On Feet

The council took on buckthorn abatement about a decade ago, headed by Garden Councilmember Dianne Plunkett Latham, and visitors can see the efforts in the exhibit.

The council also hosts a garden tour every other year and provides flowers to patients at the VA. As they push around a cart of flowers, people say, "Is that for me?" and that makes people feel better, Franklin said.
