GLOW 2020 is in full swing! Our theme this year is “Home for the Holidays”. This year’s Glow features plants that we use to celebrate the holiday season. Our holiday traditions are filled with plants and trees and this year they take center stage throughout the botanical garden’s holiday season. A huge THANK YOU to Kevin Borowiak, GLOW Affiliate Coordinator, for organizing all the efforts in making Glow a success! We have made safety our top priority, therefore, there will be a one-way traffic flow for visitors while indoors. Visitors are strongly encouraged to enjoy our outside gardens where you will find self-guided activities. We are limiting the number of visitors every 30 minutes and advance timed entry tickets are required. Tickets can be reserved up to three weeks in advance by clicking here.

Celebrating 90 Years!
Avon-On-The-Lake Garden Club celebrated the year 2020 in a big way with their 90th Anniversary. ALGC President Elaine George’s goal to “Share Our Vision” with the community really came to life. Club members created a Little Garden Book House Library to sit among the flowers at the city’s Wildflower Garden at Miller Road Park in Avon Lake. The book house is stocked with “garden” themed books for all ages. The object of the house is for the community to borrow books to get inspired to plant and get in touch with nature. The Little Garden Book house was dedicated to the city in August of this year.
In September, ALGC received a proclamation from Mayor Greg Zilka for all their hard work, dedication and continuing to educate and support the gardeners throughout the community.
To end the year, ALGC members donated over 35 specialty gift baskets, cash and gift cards totaling $3500 to help families in need this holiday season.
