Hollywood's gardens are as diverse as the styles of the houses. Our tree canopy is dense in some areas and sparse in others allowing for a variety of plants and garden styles suited to their environments.
We have members who are knee deep in the dirt and those who prefer just to admire the hard work of others. The Garden Club brings us all together to exchange ideas, civic information, and good company.
Homewood’s Native Tree Planting Initiative
In 2014, the Homewood Environmental Commission in cooperation with the Birmingham Botanical Gardens initiated a program to replenish our community’s tree canopy by harvesting seeds from native local heritage trees and replanting the seedlings throughout our city. Past plantings are growing at the new Board of Education facility, near the Senior Center in Patriot Park, in an Edgewood triangle, and along the Greenway.
HEC has partnered with three local landscape companies to assist in this initiative. See the flyer below for more details.
