STRATEGIC ACTION PLAN for HANCOCK PARK GARDEN CLUB 2018

Based on responses to the Membership Survey

 

LONG TERM GOAL: 

 

Provide stimulating and educational programs, workshops and field trips for our membership in a congenial atmosphere and continue to support our neighborhood by identifying worthwhile projects which we can support both physically and financially through our fundraisers.

 

SHORT TERM GOALS: 

Calendar:  Vary our meeting dates to include one evening meeting and one Thursday meeting to include those unable to attend the regular Tuesday meetings.

Committees:  Encourage more practical hands-on workshops

Field Trips:  Determine interest in a long distance garden tour

 

Fundraiser:  Identify projects/recipients of our fundraisers before planning an event.  Establish goals.

 

Leaflet and Web Site:  Continue to stay up to date technologically and expand the use of links to informative sources.

 

Membership:  Find new ways to better incorporate new members more effectively and eventually transition them into leadership roles.

 

GCA Interest Areas

Horticulture:  Emphasize the application of horticultural knowledge for use in our own gardens.  Continue popular hands-on workshops.

 

Conservation:  Provide programs and field trips which highlight a healthy, practical and sustainable approach to gardening and neighborhood landscaping with an eye to becoming better stewards of the environment.   

 

Photography:  Provide a workshop to help members feel more comfortable with taking great garden photos using their mobile devices.

 

Garden History and Design:  Continue to include visits to high quality gardens within our yearly programs.

 

Floral Design:  Provide club programs and workshops which teach techniques and design ideas for beautiful arrangements for our homes (made, perhaps) using our own foliage and flowers.
